Brentford have announced the signing of Christian Eriksen on a six-month contract.
Eriksen makes a sensational return to the Premier League as he seeks to resume his professional career seven months after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020.
Eriksen has agreed a deal until the end of the season, with the option for a further year. The deal is thought to be heavily performance-related.
Brentford boss Thomas Frank said: “I am looking forward to working with Christian again. It has been a while since I last coached him, and a lot has happened since then. Christian was 16 at the time and has become one of the best midfield players to appear in the Premier League. He has also won trophies all over Europe and become the star of the Danish national team.
“We have taken an unbelievable opportunity to bring a World Class player to Brentford. He hasn’t trained with a team for seven months but has done a lot of work on his own. He is fit but we will need to get him match fit and I am looking forward to seeing him work with the players and staff to get back towards his highest level.”
