Brentford have held talks with first-team player over new deal with current contract up in the summer

Latest news regarding this Brentford player’s long-term future at the club.

Brentford have reportedly held talks with Mathias Jensen over a new contract. The Bees are keen to strike a deal with the midfielder.

As detailed in a report by The Athletic, the London outfit held ‘discussions’ with him before the World Cup started last month and ‘want’ to keep him. His current contract expires at the end of the season although the club do hold an option to extend that by a further 12 months.

Jensen, 27, has played for Brentford since 2019 and has been a regular for them over the past three-and-a-half years. He helped them gain promotion from the Championship in his second year at the club and has since adapted well to life in the Premier League.

Since making the switch to England he has made a total of 151 appearances in all competitions to date, 20 of which have come this term, and has chipped in with four goals. Prior to his move to the Gtech Community Stadium, he played for FC Nordsjælland in his native Denmark before spending a year in Spain with Celta Vigo.

Jensen helped Brentford beat Liverpool in their last league outing and he told the club website afterwards: “We’re on a great run and teams are fearing us a bit, which is fantastic. We know that Liverpool are very good on the ball, but with the fighting spirit we have, especially at home when the fans get going, we are hard to play against. That’s why we came out with the win.”
