Brentford confirm signing of Fiorentina midfielder

Brentford have confirmed the signing of Danish midfielder Christian Nørgaard from Italian club Fiorentina.

The 25-year-old, who was previously at Danish club Brondby, has joined the Bees for an undisclosed fee and has signed a four-year contract at Griffin Park with the option of an additional year.

Brentford boss Thomas Frank told the club website: “Christian is player that will fit our team and the Brentford style well on and off the pitch.

“He is technically good and looks to pass the ball forward. Importantly, he is also good at intercepting passes and has a strong defensive mindset.

“Christian can play in a variety of different positions in the midfield but has given his best performances as a deep midfield player.”
