Christian Eriksen: Brentford agree terms for Denmark international but deal hinges on medical – The Athletic

Brentford have agreed terms with Denmark international Christian Eriksen, but the deal hinges on the 29-year-old completing his medical.

The Athletic understands Eriksen has agreed to a six-month contract with the option to extend for a further year. Brentford's wage structure has not been broken in agreeing terms.

However, having suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark's European Championship game against Finland on June 12, Eriksen will undergo extensive medical checks and will need to be cleared by a sports cardiologist before he is allowed to play. The FA and Premier League will also need to approve the deal.

The January 31 transfer window deadline does not apply to Eriksen after he became a free agent when he terminated his contract with Inter Milan last month.

He is unlikely to feature in Brentford's FA Cup game against Everton on February 5 even if the medical and deal is finalised before the match.

Eriksen has stated his ambition to resume his professional career, saying he was targeting a place in Denmark’s squad for the Qatar World Cup later this year.

His agent, Martin Schoots, later said that returning to English football would “feel like coming home”.

Eriksen played for Tottenham Hotspur between 2013 and 2020, making more than 300 appearances for the north London side.

After being unable to play for Inter due to Serie A’s medical rules about implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), Eriksen was training with Danish club Odense Boldklub — who he played for between 2005 and 2008.
