Toney has been linked with a host of clubs during the transfer window, including Championship side Nottingham Forest and Scottish Premiership champions Celtic.
The 24-year-old striker, who finished as League One’s top scorer last season with 24 goals in 32 games, told Sky Sports News last month although he remains focused on Peterborough, he feels it is time for a new challenge.
Brentford’s deal to sign Toney could allow Ollie Watkins to move to the Premier League with Aston Villa, Sheffield United and Fulham among several clubs interested in the striker.
Villa’s hierarchy are keen to tie up a deal soon but are becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of progress in talks.
They want to sign Watkins as soon as possible, so he can acquaint himself with his new team-mates in pre-season, before the Premier League starts on September 12.
