Super Eagles and Midtylland midfielder, Frank Onyeka, will secure a summer move to championship side Brentford in the summer according to Danish journalist, Søren Sorgenfri of NordicBet.
This is a highly probable scenario, as the owner of Brentford, Matthew Bentham, is a majority shareholder at Midtylland.
The English side have expressed interest in the 23-year-old since 2020 but they couldn’t complete a move last summer after losing in the Play-off Final. Onyeka went on to feature in the Champions League with Midtylland, where he has been the Danish club’s best player.
He was one of the revelations of the competition as he turned out the 2nd most fouled player, behind only PSG’s Neymar.
The same caveat has been placed on the future of the player again, if Brentford seal promotion to the English top-flight they can sign Onyeka for less that £15million.
Brentford are on course for another promotion push as they sit 3rd in the second tier standings, two points behind automatic promotion spot with a game in hand.
However, if they fail at another attempt, Onyeka, who has been promised a summer transfer, will access other options, despite England being his dream destination.
