Brentford boss Thomas Frank says he remains hopeful of signing Christian Eriksen but the Dane has promised to call him and inform him of his decision before he makes it public.
The 30-year-old made a sensational return to football in January when he signed a six-month deal with Brentford, just six months after he suffered a cardiac arrest playing for Denmark at Euro2020.
Eriksen defied doubters with his performances for the Bees and Frank is desperate to keep the playmaker at the club.
But the midfielder has recieved considerable interest following his performances for the Bees, with Tottenham and Manchester United making offers to the soon-to-be free agent.
But Frank says Eriksen could remain at Brentford, though the midfielder has agreed to inform him of his decision either way.
‘I coached Eriksen in the youth ranks in Denmark,’ Frank said.
‘In October, my son called me: ‘Dad, why don’t you contact Christian? He has to play football again.’ I called Eriksen in December and asked him if he would consider playing football again at Brentford and he replied: ‘Funny thing is I thought of you too’.
‘I never had any doubts that he would come back to a good level and now I hope we can retain him. I do not know [Eriksen to Brentford]. I know we still have a chance and I hope he will make a decision in two weeks.
‘The agreement is that he will call me and tell me what he wants to do. He hasn’t decided yet.’
