CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN has moved to Brentford on loan until the end of the season.
The Bees have confirmed the 29-year-old’s signature after he left Inter Milan for health reasons.
The Denmark international thinks he may never play again after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020.
But Brentford provided him with a career lifeline under former boss Thomas Frank.
Frank said: “I look forward to working with Christian again. It’s been a while since I last coached him, and a lot has happened since then.
Christian was just 16 years old at the time and was already established as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. He also won trophies throughout Europe and became the star of the Danish national team.
“We took advantage of an unbelievable opportunity to bring a World Class player to Brentford.
“He hasn’t trained with a team for seven months but has done a lot on his own.
“He’s healthy but we’ll need to get him fit for the game and I’m looking forward to seeing him work with the players and staff to get back to top form.
“At his best, Christian has the ability to control football matches. He can find the right passes and is a threat on goal.
“He also has very good serves, both from corners and from free kicks. He’s a player you can find with the ball, and he’ll come up with a solution to the problem in front of him. .
“Christian will also bring top-notch playing experience to the Club. I expect him to be influential in the dressing room and on the training ground.”
