He began his career in Chelsea’s youth academy before heading north of the border to the Scottish Premiership giants in February 2019.
At Rangers, Young-Coombes hoped to make a first-team impression but that has not happened.
The teenager has largely been involved with the club’s reserves and Under-19 squad during his two-year spell in Glasgow.
At Brentford, the plan is for him to initially link up with their ‘B’ squad while he continues his development before pushing for the first team.
Young-Coombes is a versatile forward who can operate in multiple positions in the modern mould, including wide and central positions.
Brentford are second in the Championship and just one place and point behind leaders Norwich City as they push for automatic promotion.
