Adelaide United can advise an agreement has been reached with English Championship side Brentford FC over the transfer of attacker, Lachlan Brook, for an undisclosed fee.

Brook became the third youngest player in the Club’s history when he made his debut as a 16-year-old in the 2017 AFC Champions League group stage.

The 19-year-old went on to make 10 senior appearances, scoring one goal and was a substitute in last season’s FFA Cup 2019 Final win over Melbourne City.

Speaking on his departure, Brook was grateful for his time at the Club and said the chance to play overseas was too good to refuse.

“Adelaide United has been a huge part of my footballing journey and development,” Brook said. “I achieved a lifelong goal when I got to represent my hometown Club and play for the team I grew up supporting. 

“I can’t thank the players and coaches enough for the way they’ve helped me improve as a player because without them I wouldn’t be in this position. 


“Playing overseas, especially in Europe, has always been a personal ambition of mine, so this really is another dream come true for me and an incredible opportunity.

“Finally, I want to thank the fans for their amazing support and wish the Club every success in the future.”

Adelaide United Director of Football, Bruce Djite, said: “Lachlan made it abundantly clear that his only intention was to leave the Club for Europe if an opportunity arose.

“We produce very talented players at Adelaide United and, considering the significant interest in our best talents, the message could not be clearer: if you’re young, talented, and here playing first team football, you’re more than likely going to attract interest from overseas clubs.

“Lachlan is a talented player with a lot of potential who will only continue to develop.

“We thank Lachlan for his time and dedication to the Club and wish him all the best.
