Brentford have continued their summer recruitment drive by signing Denmark international Andreas Bjelland from FC Twente.

The 26-year-old, who has amassed 21 caps for Denmark since making his international debut in 2010, has signed a three-year deal.

Bjelland becomes the Championship club's fifth acquisition of the summer following Konstantin Kerschbaumer, Akaki Gogia, Ryan Williams and Yoann Barbet through the Griffin Park entrance.

I am very happy that we have brought Andreas to Brentford.

He brings a lot of experience to the squad and that is good for us as we have a lot of young players.

He is good defender but also likes to play football from the back.

Andreas is also a Danish international and it is good for the image of Brentford FC that we can attract such players.

– Brentford head coach Marinus Dijkhuizen

Sister of England footballer 'couldn't be prouder'

The sister of England footballer Jill Scott has said she "couldn't be prouder" of what the team has achieved during the Women's World Cup.

Amanda Wilson told Good Morning Britain she was yet to speak to Jill after last night's defeat but said the team had been "brilliant to watch" during the tournament.

England lost 2-1 to Japan after an own goal in the semi-final in Canada last night.

Ms Wilson told GMB: "I always remember Jill kicking a football. Probably around 7 she played on the boy's team up to about 11. All the boys absolutely loved her and they all wanted Jill on their team - she used to run rings around them."
