Brentford have completed the signing of Danish international defender Andreas Bjelland.

GetWestLondon told you earlier this week a deal had been agreed with FC Twente for the player.

Bjelland passed a medical in west London yesterday evening and has penned a three-year at Griffin Park.

The move is subject to the centre-back receiving international clearance.

Brentford boss Marinus Dijkhuizen told the club’s website: “I am very happy that we have brought Andreas to Brentford.

“He brings a lot of experience to the squad and that is good for us as we have a lot of young players.

“He is good defender but also likes to play football from the back.

“Andreas is also a Danish international and it is good for the image of Brentford FC that we can attract such players.”

Bjelland has 21 caps for Denmark and has played in three of their five qualifying matches for the 2016 UEFA European Championships so far.

Brentford’s co-director of football Phil Giles added: “Andreas had lots of options when he decided to leave FC Twente this summer.

“I'm delighted that he chose Brentford and recognises the long term aspirations of the Club.

“Andreas won a Danish league title while working with Flemming Pedersen at Nordsjælland in 2012, and I know that Flemming is particularly happy to have opportunity to work with Andreas once again.

“We welcome Andreas to our Club and look forward to him joining our pre-season preparations.”
