Eriksen, 29, has not played since suffering a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s Euro 2020 game with Finland on 12 June and was keen for a return to top-level action in the hope of going to the World Cup.

Eriksen left Inter Milan in December by mutual consent after being suspended by the Italian medical authority from playing in Serie A.

Brentford said Eriksen completed the details of his transfer from Amsterdam and will join up with the club in the coming days.

“I can’t wait to get started and hopefully I’ll seen you all very soon,” the 29-year-old said in a short video on the club’s website.

Discussing the process of signing him, Brentford director of football Phil Giles said: “We first discussed the possibility of Christian joining Brentford when we heard that he would be leaving Inter. It is fantastic that he is now with us.

“Naturally the process of signing Christian was more elongated than most transfers. I understand that many people will have questions about the process.

“In order to respect Christian’s medical confidentiality, we won’t be going into any details. Brentford fans can rest assured that we have undertaken significant due diligence to ensure that Christian is in the best possible shape to return to competitive football.

“Now Christian has made the decision to sign for Brentford, all parties want to focus fully on football.

“We are sure that Christian will make a big impact at Brentford and on the Premier League between now and the end of the season.”
