New Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has raided former club Manchester City to secure his first signing. City defender Shaleum Logan has signed a one-year deal with the Bees, with an automatic extension for a second season depending on appearances. The 23-year-old was released by City earlier this summer after coming through the youth ranks at Eastlands. Rosler said: "Shaleum is a player who has been well educated in football terms, having come through the ranks at Manchester City. He was on the fringes of the first team under Sven-GÃ¶ran Eriksson and Mark Hughes but more recently fell down the pecking order a little bit. "It is a great opportunity for us to get such a good player to Brentford. He can play both right and left back to a good level and it is important to have players who can play in different positions when you have a small squad. "When I spoke to him I felt he realised where he is in his career and he wants to be somewhere where he will play regular first team football. We believe we can help him kick start and develop his career still further and in doing so give Brentford Football Club good service." The academy graduate was part of the side that reached the FA Youth Cup Final in 2006 and initially broke into City's team in 2007 as a 19-year-old. He played one Premier League game and also went to Grimsby Town, Scunthorpe United and Stockport County and spent Tranmere Rovers on loan.
