According to the confirmation by the club and also report on GOAL, the Nigerian is only waiting for international clearance before joining his new team.

Brentford's reaction

“Brentford have completed the signing of Nigeria international midfield player Frank Onyeka, subject to an international clearance.
“A work permit for the 23-year-old was received at the weekend and he has completed a medical. Frank will join from FC Midtjylland, where Brentford owner Matthew Benham has the majority shareholding, for an undisclosed fee and has signed a five-year contract.
“He arrived in the UK yesterday [Monday], July 19, and will now undergo a period of quarantine before joining with the squad for training.
“Frank has spent his entire professional career with FCM, as they are known, and has been a regular for them in the Danish Superliga for most of the past four seasons.''

Meanwhile, moving to the Premier League is expected to help Frank Onyeka getting active playing time in the Super Eagles under coach Gernot Rohr.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Super Eagles and Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze could be on his way to the Premier League this summer as Everton are interested in signing the Nigerian footballer.

Samuel Chukwueze is no doubt one of the best wingers in the world considering his performances since moving to the Spanish La Liga where he has been superb for Villarreal.

Last season, he was injured and was unable to play in the final of the Europa League which his club won beating Premier League side Manchester United in the final.

Should Samuel Chukwueze make a move to Premier League side Everton, then he will have the chance to play with Super Eagles teammate Alex Iwobi.
