Onyeka extends Brentford stay after signing new four-year contract

Onyeka has been involved in some of the club’s most iconic wins over the last two seasons, including starts in our maiden Premier League win over Arsenal at Gtech Community Stadium and victory away at champions Manchester City.

Super Eagles and Brentford midfielder Frank Onyeka has signed a new four-year contract with the Bees, with a option for an additional 12 months.

The Nigeria international has made 41 Premier League appearances since signing for the west Londoners in 2021.

The 25-year-old also provided goal contributions in two games last season, helping the Bees to a top-half Premier League finish.

It was his cutback that led to Ivan Toney cheekily opening the scoring in Brentford’s 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion at the Gtech, and he picked out Josh Dasilva for his late winner in the 2-1 home victory against Nottingham Forest.

“I’m very pleased that Frank has signed a new contract,” said head coach Thomas Frank. “He has helped the team a lot during our time in the Premier League.

“During both seasons he has been unlucky with injuries, which have prevented him from taking an even bigger step forward in terms of minutes, but I really like his energy.

“Frank is a great pressing player. He runs into the half-spaces and in behind, progressing up the pitch. He’s a very important player for us and we’re looking forward to continuing the journey with him.”
