Harlee James Dean (born 26 July 1991) is an English professional football defender who plays for Brentford. He began his career at Dagenham & Redbridge, before moving to Southampton in 2010.

Career[edit]

Dagenham & Redbridge[edit]

A centre back, Dean started his career as a youth player at Dagenham & Redbridge. Dean received his maiden call into the first team for a League Two match against Morecambe on 7 March 2009.[2] He was assigned the number 35 shirt and was an unused substitute for the 2-0 defeat.[2] Dean received his first call into the senior squad of the 2009/10 season for the Daggers' League Cup first round match versus Cardiff City on 11 August 2009.[3] He was an unused substitute for the 3-1 defeat.[3] Dean made his professional debut on 31 October 2009, coming on as an 82nd minute substitute for Scott Doe in a 1–1 home league draw with Port Vale. He set up Josh Scott for the equaliser.[4] It proved to be the only appearance of Dean's Dagenham career[5] and he departed the club on 27 August 2010.[6]

Redbridge (loan)[edit]

Early in the 2008/09 season, Dean had a three-month loan spell at Isthmian League Division One North side Redbridge, where he made 15 appearances and scored four goals.[7] Two of those goals came in a 6-1 thrashing of Witham Town on 9 September 2008.[8]

Bishop's Stortford (loan)[edit]

Dean joined Conference South side Bishop's Stortford on loan, which was later extended in January 2009.[9] He made 13 appearances and scored three goals during his spell.[7]

Thurrock (loan)[edit]

Dean signed for Conference South strugglers Thurrock on loan in March 2009.[10] He made 10 appearances and scored no goals.[7]

Braintree Town (loan)[edit]

Dean joined Conference South side Braintree Town on loan early in the 2009/10 season. He made 8 appearances for the club and scored no goals.[11]

Grays Athletic[edit]

Dean signed on loan for Conference Premier side Grays Athletic in November 2009,[12] a deal which was later extended until the end of the 2009/10 season.[13] Dean made 23 appearances and scored one goal during his time with the club.[14]

Southampton[edit]

Dean signed for League One side Southampton on a two-year contract on 27 August 2010.[6] Allotted the number 31 shirt, Dean's only involvement in the first team during the 2010/11 season was as an unused substitute for a 2-0 defeat to Brentford on 11 December 2010.[15] After the Saints' promotion to the Championship and now wearing the number 39 shirt, Dean's only involvement with the first team during the 2011/12 season was as an unused substitute for League Cup matches versus Swindon Town[16] and Crystal Palace[17] early in the campaign. He was released by the club at the end of the season, having failed to make an appearance.[18][19]

Return to Bishop's Stortford (loan)[edit]

Along with Tony Garrod, Dean returned to Bishop's Stortford on a month's loan in February 2011.[20] On 31 March, manager Ian Walker extended Dean's loan until the end of the 2010/11 season.[21] He made ten appearances during his spell,[22] scoring a consolation goal in a 3-1 defeat to Weston-super-Mare on 19 February.[23]

Brentford[edit]

On 24 November 2011, Dean joined League One side Brentford on loan until 8 January 2012.[24][25] Awarded the number 25 shirt, he made his debut two days later in a 2–1 win at Rochdale, coming on as a late substitute for match-winner and former Dagenham & Redbridge teammate Sam Saunders.[26] Dean made his first start for the club in the following game, partnering Leon Legge in defence in a 1-0 FA Cup second round defeat.[27] On 5 January 2012, Dean's loan was extended until the end of the 2011–12 season.[28] By the end of January, Dean was consistently one of manager Uwe Rösler's first choice centre backs and scored the first professional goal of his career with the opener in a 4–0 demolition of Carlisle United on 20 February.[29] Dean made 28 appearances during the 2011–12 season and scored one goal.[30]

On 21 May 2012, Dean signed a two-year permanent deal with the club.[31] Dean got his 2012–13 season off to a good start, scoring on his third appearance in a 5–1 rout of Crewe Alexandra on 25 August 2012.[32] Dean scored his second goal of the season with the third in a 3–1 away victory over Colchester United on Boxing Day[33] and bagged his third goal of the season with an equaliser in a 2–1 defeat to Tranmere Rovers on 19 January 2013, making amends after bringing down David Amoo to concede a penalty for Tranmere's opening goal.[34] A highlight of Dean's season were two starting appearances in the FA Cup fourth round against Premier League side Chelsea, with a 2–2 draw at Griffin Park[35] taking the Bees to a replay at Stamford Bridge, which was lost 4–0.[36] A third-place finish in the league and success against Swindon Town in the end-of-season playoffs saw Brentford face Yeovil Town in the 2013 League One play-off Final at Wembley Stadium. After going 2-0 behind, Dean powered home a header in the 51st minute, but wave after wave of subsequent attacks proved fruitless and it was the Glovers who were promoted to the Championship.[37] Dean amassed 56 appearances during the 2012/13 season and scored four goals.[38] Amidst transfer interest from Championship side Burnley,[39] Dean signed a three-year contract extension in the summer of 2013.[40]

Dean began the 2013–14 season as an ever-present in the league and was rested for Brentford's unsuccessful League Cup and Football League Trophy campaigns. He made his 100th Brentford appearance in a 5–0 thrashing of Crewe Alexandra on 16 November 2013.[41][42] Dean suffered the first injury of his Bees career in the Christmas period, picking up a knock which saw him miss four games in January.[43] A broken metatarsal and an abdominal strain saw Dean miss three games in March, which allowed new centre back signing James Tarkowski to break into the team. A red card for Tarkowski in a crunch match versus Leyton Orient on 15 March saw Dean make his first appearance since 22 February, when he came on as a 51st minute substitute for goalscorer Marcello Trotta in the 1–0 win.[44] Dean's season ended early on 28 April, when he underwent an operation to fix his abdominal injury.[45] He made 33 appearances during a successful season for the Bees,[46] which saw the club automatically promoted to the Championship with a runners-up finish.
