Brentford boss Thomas Frank has reiterated that Christian Eriksen's future is unlikely to be decided until the end of the season.

The Danish ace, 30, grabbed his first Brentford goal last week as the Bees stunned west London rivals and reigning European champions Chelsea 4-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Frank insists Brentford have a chance of keeping the Eriksen long-term but the focus remains on the games ahead as the Bees edge closer to securing Premier League football for another season.

The 48-year-old, whose side welcome West Ham to the Brentford Community Stadium on Sunday, said: “I don't think anything will be decided before the end of the season.

“We would like to keep him but it's up to Christian to decide what he wants to do.”

As Brentford prepare to face the Hammers in another London derby, Frank hopes his side can keep up the momentum from last week’s impressive win.

He added: “We all know winning football matches helps the mood.

“Of course, this game [Chelsea] gives them a lot of confidence.”

On whether Brentford can match the achievements of West Ham by playing in Europe, Frank admits it is not a target his side have at the moment.

He said: “I think every club would dream about Europe.

“It's a big dream for us, but we understand if we're not in the present, then there's no chance we'll reach these crazy dreams.”

The Bees currently sit nine points above Burnley in the final relegation spot, though the Clarets – who dramatically beat fellow strugglers Everton 3-2 at Turf Moor in midweek – have two games in hand.

West Ham, who are still within an outside chance of securing Champions League football, are coming into Sunday’s clash off the back of a hard earned 1-1 draw with Lyon on Thursday in the Europa League, where they played the whole second half with ten men.

Brentford, who beat West Ham earlier in the season, will be looking to do their first ever league double over a team in the Premier League.
