Last updated : 19 January 2006 By Smallsy
According to reports in the national newspapers and on the BBC website Brentford are set to make Greg Dyke, the former head of the BBC chairman within the next few days.

Dyke will act as head of the supporter group Bees United, the association which has been raising funds to buy major shareholder Ron Noades out. Bees United have finally aquired the one million pounds they needed raised through, donations and events over the last couple of months.

This effectively means that Bees united will take over the clubs 4.5 million pound overdraft, with the help of Brentford fan Dyke the deal has been given the green light.

Given two years to buy his shares out Noades has turned his back on the club he once managed and was chairman off in 1998. After granting the club an extension on their dealine, the Bees have been scrapping for cash and have narrowly avoided several administration deadlines throughout the end of 2005.

We will report more once the move has been confirmed and details of the agreement are shared with the general public.
