Brentford have not given up hope of re-signing Christian Eriksen despite rival interest from Tottenham and Manchester United, 90min understands.

The Bees signed the Dane on an initial six-month deal at the end of the January transfer window and he had a transformative effect on the team, helping to steer them away from an impending relegation battle as they finished 13th with 46 points.

The west London side have made it no secret that they want Eriksen to stick around in the long-term, though 90min understands he initially suggested he would be leaving the club when his contract expires at the end of June.

However, Brentford are continuing to push for the 30-year-old to stay and have made renewed efforts to re-sign him in the last few days.

Brentford head coach Thomas Frank, who the playmaker worked with in the Denmark youth setup at the beginning of his career, recently met with Eriksen in person to discuss his future.
