​Brentford boss Frank hopeful of retaining Eriksen beyond this season

Brentford coach Thomas Frank believes it is "100% realistic" for them to hold onto Christian Eriksen beyond this season.

The Danish international, who has made a comeback after his cardiac arrest on the pitch last summer during Euro 2020, has been with the Bees for the second half of this season.

After working his way back to full fitness, Eriksen has impressed in recent Premier League games, providing vital assists to his teammates.

"He's here until the end of the season and then there are some options afterwards but that will be decided at the end of the season," Frank said, per West London Sport.

"I think that's a discussion between Christian and the club. Of course if you ask me, I hope that he will stay for a longer time.

"I'm convinced and sure that he's happy with life right now. He's come to a club with a very good environment and good atmosphere and I'm sure that he likes that a lot and he knows a lot of people here.

"I think it's realistic to keep him, 100%, but I am also aware that there are bigger clubs out there that could potentially be interested.

"I think it's probably down to a lot of factors but I hope that he likes the project and he wants to stay.

"I'm just enjoying having him here. I don't think it's the time to focus too much on what's going to happen at the end of the season."
