Wojciech Szczesny has become a firm favourite during his brief loan spell at Brentford - and Griffin Park boss Andy Scott wants him to stay.
The 19 year old Arsenal goalkeeper has conceded just four times in seven games - keeping three clean sheets - and after the Bees' 3-1 win over Carlisle, Scott told the RICHMOND AND TWICKENHAM TIMES: ""Wojciech made some terrific saves. When he was called upon he showed his class.
