Brentford already planning to offer Christian Eriksen new contract

Brentford are already planning to offer Christian Eriksen a new contract.

The 30-year-old made a triumphant return to football in January when he signed a six-month contract with Brentford after suffering a heart attack while representing Denmark at last summer's European Championship.

The midfielder was forced to leave Inter Milan as he was unable to play in Italy with a heart defibrillator but has since made three appearances for Brentford.

The Times says Brentford are keen to extend his deal and believe they are in a strong position to retain his services.

The club are yet to make a formal offer to the Dane but they reportedly believe that working alongside his countrymen, manager Thomas Frank and players Christian Norgaard and Matthias Jorgensen, has made him loyal to the club.

Brentford believe that Eriksen will wait until the end of the season to make a decision on his future.
