Konsa set for Aston Villa move as Bees sign Jensen

Brentford have completed the signing of Danish midfielder Mathias Jensen from Celta Vigo and are close to selling defender Ezri Konsa to Aston Villa.

The 21-year-old Konsa, who has a £12m release clause in his contract, joined the Bees on a three-year deal from Charlton last summer. He started in 42 of the club’s 46 Championship fixtures last season.

Jensen, 23, has agreed a four-year contract at Griffin Park with the option of a further year.

He moved to Spain last year from FC Nordsjælland, where he was a team-mate of Brentford’s Emiliano Marcondes.

Jensen was named in Denmark’s preliminary 35-man squad for the 2018 World Cup but did not make the final 23.
