BRENTFORD are set to sign Wigan Athletic defender Rob Kiernan on loan.
The Bees are short of options at the back after injuries to Leon Legge and Kevin O'Connor, with the 21-year-old coming in to provide cover.
Kiernan is understood to be at the club's Jersey Road headquarters this morning as the Bees prepare for Saturday's trip to Preston.
The Republic of Ireland U21 captain hasn't featured for the Latics first team, but has spent spells out on loan at League Two Accrington Stanley and, more recently, Burton Albion.
