Brentford have reportedly given Charlie Goode the green light to head out the exit door again. The centre-back had a loan spell at Sheffield United last season.
According to a report by Football Insider, he is now in ‘advanced talks’ to drop back into the Championship with Blackpool. The Seasiders are now managed by Mick McCarthy and he is looking to bolster his newly inherited squad before the end of the January transfer window.
Brentford swooped to sign the 27-year-old in 2020 from Northampton Town and they were promoted to the Premier League in his first year at the club. However, he has struggled to get regular game time with the London club and was shipped out on loan last term to the Blades.
Goode struggled with a knee injury during his time at Bramall Lane and only ended up making two appearances for the Yorkshire outfit. They reached the play-offs in the last campaign but lost to Nottingham Forest over two legs.
Prior to his move to the Bees, he had spells in the academies at Watford and Fulham before dropping into non-league as a youngster. A switch to Blackpool now beckons as he looks to get some games under his belt.
Elsewhere, Brentford’s Rico Henry was satisfied with the draw away at Leeds United yesterday. He told the club website: “Before the game, we spoke about their high press, their high intensity. They like to press, so we tried to play in behind them, we could have maybe done it a bit more. But we know it was going to be a dogfight, that’s what we expected, so it was good to get a point.”
