Danish national footballer Christian Eriksen’s return to the English Premier League is apparently imminent.
Around seven months after his European Championship cardiac arrest, the 29-year-old is said to have agreed a six-month deal with Brentford FC with the option of a further season, according to The Athletic.
First, Eriksen, who was fitted with a defibrillator following last summer’s drama, must undergo a full medical to be cleared for the Premier League, according to British media. The midfielder also needs a work permit for Great Britain.
Eriksen cannot play in Italy with a defibrillator
Newly promoted Brentford’s team manager is Thomas Frank of Denmark. From 2013 to 2020, Eriksen played for traditional club Tottenham Hotspur, also from London. His agent, Martin Schoots, recently said moving to England would feel like a “homecoming” for Eriksen.
Eriksen, who dreams of participating in the World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year, was recently under contract with Inter Milan. The midfielder cannot continue his career there due to a rule in Italy that prohibits playing with a defibrillator on.
