Double Deal! Dons snap-up Brentford midfielder

England youth international signed up

18 July 2022

We've made it a double Monday deal by signing Brentford midfielder Paris Maghoma on a season-long loan.

Paris was signed by the Bees back in January 2020 from Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee and has since gone from strength to strength in West London. 

He has been capped at youth level by England and is developing a good reputation for being a midfielder that can dictate the tempo of a game, alongside having a level of maturity that is far beyond his years. 

The 21-year-old featured on the bench for Brentford’s first-team last season and was rewarded for his rapid progression with a new long-term contract back in January.

His arrival adds to our previous signings of Alex Pearce, Chris Gunter, Kyle Hudlin and Josh Davison as our squad continues to take shape ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Speaking about the signing of Paris, Johnnie Jackson said:“He’s someone that we highlighted at the start of the window as one that we wanted to get in. Paris has been involved with Brentford’s first-team and has been on tour with them, so he’s very highly regarded.

“We’ve had to bide our time but it’s fantastic to have got it done. We’ve got a good relationship with Brentford and they see it as a great opportunity for him to come to us.

“He’s a versatile player. He’s a good size. He can play further forward in a box to box role and he’s also comfortable at operating in a much deeper position as a player that can dictate the tempo of the game.”
