Brentford boss Frank: I never considered Eriksen signing a gamble

Brentford boss Thomas Frank retains hope of Christian Eriksen signing a new contract.

Frank hasn't given up on keeping his fellow Dane for a little longer.

He said after Sunday's 3-2 win at Everton: "There is still more to come from him.

"Maybe not 10 top crosses a game, but more sharpness in the big moments. He's at a good level now but the last bit will take some time.

"For me [signing Eriksen] was not a gamble. I was convinced he could help us and that he could be the best signing ever for Brentford.

"It was not an injury, it was a heart condition. So he wouldn't have lost any speed or anything. There's a mental issue but when he decided he wanted to play that was it."
