English Premier League club, Brentford FC have confirmed the signing of Danish midfielder, Christian Eriksen just seven months after he suffered from a cardiac arrest.

The Denmark international midfield player is said to link up with the Bees for rest of season.

The 29-year-old signed his contract after completing a medical assessment. He has signed until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Eriksen left Inter Milan in December by mutual consent after being suspended by the Italian medical authority from playing in Serie A due to a rule prohibiting the use of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) device he has had fitted.

The 29-year-old was implanted with the ICD after he suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s Euro 2020 match against Finland in Copenhagen. But has completed all the necessary medical checks and is fit to return to football.

The attacking midfield player is well known to Brentford FC Head Coach Thomas Frank. Christian played for Denmark’s Under-17 side when Thomas was coach of that group. He progressed quickly through the international ranks, making his full debut for Denmark aged 18.

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.

“At his best, Christian has the ability to dictate games of football. He can find the right passes and is a goal threat. He also has very, very good set piece delivery, both from corners and direct free kicks. He is a player you can find with the ball, and he will come up with a solution to the problem in front of him. Christian will also bring experience of top level football to the Club. I expect him to have an impact in the dressing room and at the Training Ground.

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