Brentford boss Thomas Frank has revealed new Brentford signing Mikkel Damsgaard will not be fit enough to start against Manchester United on Saturday.

The 22-year-old could still make his Premier League debut from the bench after recently joining Brentford in a deal worth £11.8 million.

“He hasn’t played or trained with the team for the last 10 days,” Frank said.

“That’s not to say he can’t play 10, 15, or 20 minutes at a good level for this game. He is not ready to start. He had an absolutely perfect medical with nothing to worry about.”
