David Titov was delighted to have signed a new deal with The Bees on Tuesday morning. The 17-year-old sat down with iFollow after putting pen to paper on an 18-month contract extension at Griffin Park.

"I'm really happy," said David. "It's good to be a part of the club still. There are a lot of new players and friendly faces, and I feel like we are going to do very well. I'm happy to be a part of it.

"It's really good to go from not having much game time last year, to this year and having much more. It feels good to know that Kevin O'Connor and Allan Steele have the belief in me to succeed for many years to come."

Now with a bit of security in his role at the Club, David can focus on building for the future and where his career might take him.

"Now I just want to improve on my weaknesses," he said. "This will help me become a better player so then I can push myself to go for a First Team place. 

"Personally, I think there has been a big change in my game this year. I think some of the things I'm doing now aren't what I was expected to do at this stage. Now I feel like I've really pushed myself to the limit.

"With all the support and trust that I am getting now, I feel like I'll be able to give more to the team and get back even more from it as well."

A lot of the B Team players have spoken highly about the quality of the games programme at Brentford FC, with games against Manchester City and Bayern Munich on the schedule, and David was no different.

"It's good to play against big teams and see how they play their type of football, obviously every team brings something new. It's good to get a challenge from each game."

In an interview with iFollow recently, that can be found here, David said he never wanted to give up. Asked about how important that attitude is for a young professional, he said: "It's definitely important. It's about having that bit of fire about you, making you push on to the very last bit."
