The 29-year-old midfielder had a serious health scare while serving his country at the European Championships.
Christian Eriksen has signed a short-term contract with Brentford until the end of the 2021-22 season after suffering a heart attack during Euro 2020.
The 29-year-old playmaker suffered a major health crisis when representing his country at the 2021 World Championships, and has been out of competition since receiving a defibrillator.
Regulations in Italy prevented him from rejoining Inter, and his contract at San Siro had to be terminated, but the ex-Tottenham striker is now free to return to the Premier League.
Brentford’s director of football, Phil Giles, said, “We first investigated the possibility of Christian joining Brentford when we learnt he would be leaving Inter.” It’s fantastic that he’s finally joined us.
Christian’s signing took considerably longer than other transfers. I’m sure many people will have questions concerning the operation. To respect Christian’s medical privacy, we won’t go into any specifics.
“Brentford fans can rest certain that we’ve done our homework to ensure Christian’s best chance of returning to competitive football.” All parties involved want to focus exclusively on football now that Christian has opted to join Brentford.
“From now until the conclusion of the season, we are convinced that Christian will have a huge impact at Brentford and in the Premier League.”
Eriksen previously played for Tottenham Hotspur for six and a half years, appearing in 305 games and scored 69 goals.
Brentford are eight points clear of the Premier League relegation zone in their first season back in the top level, and they will face Everton in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday before a challenging trip to Manchester City.
Eriksen is unlikely to feature in either of those games because, despite receiving a Covid-19 vaccination, he will not arrive in west London for a few more days and will not train this week to meet with UK entrance regulations.
