– Uwe Rosler, speaking to Brentford's official website
We are delighted to finally get Paul. It was a long battle to get him.
Without Paul's commitment and desire to want to play for Brentford, the deal would not have happened.
It is fantastic to see a player like Paul prepared to make sacrifices to join us and it is pleasing for me that he believes in what we want to achieve. I know that Paul wants to join us for the right reasons and I thank him for that.
I always said I wanted more experience in the squad and we now have three experienced strikers. There will be good competition for places.
Former Manchester City striker Uwe Rosler will be looking to build on a solid first season in charge at Griffin Park.
