Frank signs new Brentford deal until 2027

Brentford head coach Thomas Frank has signed a new contract, the club have announced.

It was only back in January that the 49-year-old Dane agreed fresh terms on a deal until 2025. But given the way the Bees have started their second season in the Premier League, the board have opted to hand him another extension until the summer of 2027.

Brentford sit 10th in the table after four wins and seven draws from the 15 league games that preceded the World Cup break and get back underway when Tottenham travel to the Gtech Community Stadium on Boxing Day.

Should he see out the contract in west London, Frank will pass a decade with the club, having first joined as one of two assistants to Dean Smith in December 2016, before being appointed head coach in his own right when Smith joined boyhood club Aston Villa in October 2018.

He guided Brentford to promotion from the Championship at the end of the 2020/21 season, which took the club into the Premier League for the first time in their history, and helped them to a 13th-place finish last term.
