Eriksen won't rule signing new Brentford contract

Christian Eriksen isn't ruling out signing a new deal with Brentford.

Denmark international Eriksen returned to football for the first time since he suffered a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 when he joined Brentford on January 31, becoming the Bees' key creative influence across a string of displays that have seen the midfielder linked with Manchester United and former club Tottenham.

Brentford play their final game of an impressive first season in the Premier League when they host Leeds on Sunday, and Eriksen says he is yet to decide whether he will extend his deal with Thomas Frank's side.

Two-time Tottenham Player of the Season Eriksen told BBC Sport: "I don't know what the future holds.

"It will be a decision from a sporting perspective but also from a family perspective, going into the decision of where we're going to go.

"I've always wanted to win trophies. I'm always on the competitive side, I always want to be the best version possible in any way, playing at the highest level possible."

When he was asked whether Brentford are "in the conversation", Eriksen replied: "They are – they definitely are. I haven't made up my mind 100 percent of where I'm going.

"I have an idea, but what's going to happen I don't know. But Brentford are definitely in the category of one of the clubs."
