Nigeria international midfielder, Frank Onyeake, has joined newly-promoted English Premier League side, Brentford, on a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
Onyeka who joins from Danish side, FC Midtjylland, arrived in the UK on Monday 19 July, and will now undergo a period of quarantine before joining with the squad for training.
The 23-year-old becomes the club’s first signing since securing promotion to the English top-flight league
Speaking to the club’s website, Brentford coach, Thomas Frank, said: “I am looking forward to getting Frank in the building. We think he is a strong addition to the squad, and we are looking forward to working with him. He is a very dynamic player.
“Frank plays as an eight in our system, he is very good at getting from box to box and will be valuable to us when we don’t have the ball. He has come from the Danish league and was one of the best midfield players in that league, we think he has the potential to develop further. All the coaches here are looking forward to working with Frank and pushing him to a higher level.”
At international level, Onyeka received his first Nigeria call-up last year. He was selected for friendly matches last October and made his international debut against Algeria, his only appearance till date.
