Brentford boss Mark Warburton has been impressed with the way new signing Chuba Akpom has settled in to his high-flying squad.

The on-loan Arsenal youngster, who joined the club for a month last week, made his Bees debut as a 68th minute substitute in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Walsall.

The 18-year-old England U19 striker has been on the books with the Premier League club since the age of six and made his first-team debut earlier this season.

And Warburton is pleased he has adapted to his new surroundings so quickly.

"Chuba Akpom is only 18-years-old and is a good physical specimen," he said at the weekend.

"He runs well, is quick, has got a very tidy touch and good technique.

"I was pleased for him when he came on. He's settled in well to the group and has shown really well in training."
