Brentford FC can confirm the signing of Danish international midfielder Christian Eriksen, subject to international clearance. The 29-year-old signed his contract after completing a medical evaluation. He has signed until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Christian has been playing at the highest level of European football for more than a decade. He excelled in the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur and was part of the Internazionale team that won Serie A last season. Christian made 26 appearances for Inter as Milan won the Italian top flight for the first time in 11 years.

Christian has also been a mainstay of the Denmark team for over a decade. He has played 109 matches and has scored 36 goals. His last appearance was against Finland in a UEFA European Championship match in Copenhagen in June, during which Christian went into cardiac arrest. He has been out of the game for the last seven months.

The attacking midfielder is well known to Brentford FC head coach Thomas Frank. Christian played for the Denmark under-17 team when Thomas was the coach of that group. He quickly progressed through the international ranks, making his full debut for Denmark at the age of 18.

Thomas Frank said: “I am looking forward to working with Christian again. It’s been a while since I last trained him, and a lot has happened since then. Christian was 16 at the time and has become one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. He has also won trophies all over Europe and has become the star of the Danish national team.

“We have seized an incredible opportunity to bring a world-class player to Brentford. He hasn’t trained with a team for seven months, but he’s done a lot of work on his own. He is fit but we will need him to be fit for the game and I look forward to seeing him work with the players and staff to get him back to the highest level.

“At his best, Christian has the ability to dictate football matches. He can find the right passes and is a goal threat. He also has very, very good set-piece shooting, both from corners and direct free kicks. He is a player that you can find with the ball, and he will find a solution to the problem in front of him. Christian will also bring his experience in top-level football to the Club. I hope he makes an impact in the locker room and on the Training Ground.

Speaking about the process of signing Christian, Phil Giles, Brentford’s director of football, said: “We first discussed the possibility of Christian joining Brentford when we heard he was leaving Inter. It is fantastic that he is now with us.

“Naturally, the process of signing Christian was longer than most transfers. I understand that many people will have questions about the process. In order to respect Christian’s medical confidentiality, we will not go into detail. Brentford fans can be assured that we have carried out significant due diligence to ensure that Christian is in the best possible shape to return to competitive football. Now that Christian has made the decision to sign for Brentford, all parties want to focus squarely on football.

“We are confident that Christian will have a huge impact at Brentford and in the Premier League between now and the end of the season.”

Christian has been training with young players at AFC Ajax in Amsterdam as he improves his fitness. The move was completed with the midfielder still in the Netherlands. Christian has recently received his COVID-19 vaccination and, in order to comply with UK entry regulations, he will travel to West London in the coming days and will not train with Brentford this week.

Christian’s first professional football game at Ajax, where he spent five years, winning three league titles, a Dutch Cup and a Dutch Super Cup, before moving to Tottenham. The Danish international made 226 Premier League appearances for Spurs, making 305 appearances in total, including a UEFA Champions League final, in six and a half years in north London. The five-time Danish Footballer of the Year spent 18 months at Inter but left the reigning Italian champions in December.
