Brentford star Dasilva unfazed by reports of Premier League interest

Brentford midfielder Josh Dasilva

Brentford midfielder Josh Dasilva has shrugged off speculation linking him with West Ham 

The former Arsenal trainee, who made his England Under-21 debut last year, only signed a new contract with the Bees in October.

Dasilva, 22, has turned in some impressive performances this season, particularly in the run to the Carabao Cup semi-finals – he scored the winning goal against Newcastle in the quarter-finals last month.

The Guardian recently reported that West Ham are showing an interest in him.

However, Dasilva insists he won’t let the talk distract him from his goal of helping the Bees reach the top flight for the first time since 1947.

“You just carry on and focus on what I can deal with,” Dasilva said.

“We are fourth in the league, in a semi-final and were two points from being automatically promoted last year.

“I am enjoying my football and it’s just about focusing on the next game, which is Tottenham. That is where I’m at.”

Bees head coach Thomas Frank recently insisted there is no chance at all of his best players leaving during this month’s transfer window.

Frank said: “I understand why Premier League clubs will approach, because we have some very good players.

“No players will leave us in January. That’s not an option. They enjoy playing for Brentford and we are enjoying the journey.

“None of the players want to leave us and we definitely don’t want to let them go.”
