Brentford boss Frank: Why can't Eriksen sign a deal tomorrow?

Brentford boss Thomas Frank is convinced Christian Eriksen will sign a new contract.

The 30-year-old signed a short-term deal with the west London club in January after recovering from the cardiac arrest that saw him collapse during last summer's Euros.

Since joining the Bees, Eriksen has been instrumental in helping the club secure their Premier League status. They are now 11 points clear of the drop with just two games of their season remaining.

After victory over Southampton, Frank was quick to stress how settled his star is, despite links with other Premier League clubs, Manchester United and Tottenham among them.

Asked if renewing Eriksen's contract was this summer's priority, he responded: "Can I do it before?

"He is very happy here, he's pleased. He's loved.

"He enjoys his football, hopefully he'll take a positive decision for us."
