It was confirmed late yesterday afternoon that Barnsley and Brentford had come to an agreement over compensation for the transfer of Alfie Mawson.

22 year old defender Mawson came through Brentford’s Academy ranks and signed his first professional deal back in the summer of 2013.

He made his first team debut for the Griffin Park outfit in their League Cup game against Derby County back in August of 2013, and then took in loan spells with Luton Town, Welling and Wycombe Wanderers before moving on a free transfer to Oakwell in the summer of 2015.

His time at Barnsley (as per the announcement) has so far seen him make 29 starting appearances with a return of six goals.

Despite the free transfer, training compensation was owed to his former club, and whilst undisclosed, that figure has now been agreed upon between the two clubs and the agreement was reached without the need for a tribunal.

A brief statement from Barnsley read.

‘The amount will remain undisclosed and Barnsley Football Club is pleased it has reached a satisfactory agreement with Brentford, thus avoiding the need for this matter to be settled before a tribunal.’
