22 June 2017

Brentford midfield player Jan Holldack has signed a new B Team contract. The 21-year-old put pen to paper on the new one-year deal today, Thursday 22 June, after returning from his native Germany, where he has spent the past six months on loan. Jan – who can also play in defence spent the second half of the 2016/17 campaign with Wuppertaler SV. He will link up with Brentford B for pre-season training when it starts tomorrow.

Jan joined The Bees in the summer of 2015 after his contract at 1. FC Köln expired. The German under-18 international had been with Köln since he was 15 and played for them in the Under-17 and Under-19 Bundesliga. Jan made his Brentford debut in the EFL Cup against Exeter City last August after featuring for the First Team in pre-season, he was also an unused substitute against Huddersfield Town on the opening day of the Sky Bet Championship season. In his half-season in the German fourth tier Jan played 13 games in all competitions and scored three goals.

Robert Rowan, Brentford FC Head of Football Operations, said: “I’m looking forward to having Jan back with us this season. He’s another player, like Manny Onariase, who’s had a good year gaining valuable experience that will benefit his career in the long term. It was a positive start to last season for Jan, making his debut for the First Team against Exeter followed by training opportunities with the First Team. The last six months he’s been playing First Team football in Regionalliga West with Wuppertaler and had several good performances plus three goals and assists. It is positive to see him continuing to score goals from midfield in First Team football.”
