Pierre joins Wycombe on three-year contract
Wycombe Wanderers have signed defender Aaron Pierre on a three year contract.
The Chairboys will pay Brentford an undisclosed amount of compensation after the 21 year-old turned down the offer of a new contract at Griffin Park.
Pierre made three substitute appearances for the Bees in cup competitions before making his league debut on-loan at Wycombe at the end of March.
He went on to make eight appearances for the Blues scoring one goal.
Primarily a central-defender, Pierre showed his versatility when he impressed at left-back in the Chairboys' 3-0 victory at Torquay in the final game of the season.
Brentford's Academy Director Ose Aibangee said: "We took him as a raw 18-year-old and have watched him develop over the past three years. He has been given the opportunity to play first-team football immediately and has decided that is right for him."
"We would have liked to see how he developed if he had stayed at Brentford but I respect his decision. Wycombe is a good club, Aaron did well there on loan and I am sure he will make an impact at League Two level."
Blues' boss Gareth Ainsworth said: "Aaron was outstanding for us during his short loan spell and I know the fans will be pleased to see him back in the light and dark blue quarters."
"He's strong, quick and comfortable with the ball. He's equally comfortable at left back or in the centre, and he has all the attributes to go a long way in the game."
The current status of the Wycombe squad is as follows...
Aaron Pierre (Three-year contract)
Paul Hayes (Two-year contract)

Gary Doherty (One-year)
