Christian Eriksen returns to the Premier League. The Dane has decided to make a comeback to football by joining Brentford. He left Tottenham Hotspur in January 2020 and, he is now coming back in January 2022. The 29-year old played for about six and a half years with Spurs before coming to Italy. He has signed a deal of six months with Brentford on the deadline day of this transfer window. There is also an option in his contract to extend his stay till June 2023.
It is a fairytale return for the Danish international as many people thought he might not play football again. But, just after seven months of the horrific cardiac arrest, Eriksen has made himself fit to play football again in the Premier League. The 29-year old had to leave Inter Milan because he can not play in Serie A with an Implantable Cardioverter-defibrillator. So, with mutual consent, his contract was terminated and he became a free agent. However, in the UK, there is no such rule and Eriksen will become the first player to play in Premier League with a defibrillator.

After his recovery, Eriksen was training near his home. He recently stepped up his training by playing with a young Ajax team and came back to shape. The Danish international also wants to play in the World Cup in Qatar and represent his country. He will settle in at Brentford, as he will see some familiar faces from his Denmark national team. Thomas Frank coached him before when he was a part of the Denmark U-17 side.
Thomas Frank is excited to have him, and he praised him for his motivation. The Danish manager first wants to make Eriksen match fit.
