Southend United can confirm an agreement has been reached for the transfer of Dru Yearwood to Brentford for an undisclosed fee.
The 19-year-old midfielder has come through the ranks at Blues and gone onto make 61 appearances in total.
He signed a four-year deal in August 2017 ahead of his breakthrough season, featuring 29 times during the 2017/18 campaign.
A hamstring injury prevented the Academy product from meeting up with the England U18s last summer, but he returned to action in September and ended the 2018/19 season playing over 30 games.
We wish Dru the best of luck in the next step of his career and look forward to welcoming him back to Roots Hall in the future.
