Brentford star Vitaly Janelt has admitted he’s had contact from both the Premier League and Bundesliga about a potential move.
The 23-year-old midfielder has established himself as a key player at the club since his arrival from VfL Bochum in October 2020.
He played a big role in helping the Bees secure promotion to the Premier League last season and has kept his status this year, with 26 appearances and four goals in the league to his name so far.
He recently signed a new deal that will extend his contract at Brentford until 2026, a clear indication of the club’s faith in him and determination to ward off any suitors.
They are likely to be lining up in future if he continues to impress for Thomas Frank’s side and puts in performances like his recent double against Chelsea.
And according to him, there are already interested parties who’ve been in contact, although he is happy at Brentford for the time being.
“At the time, I “only” signed until 2024 and then made a very big contribution to the club’s promotion,” he told Kicker.
“And it’s actually usually the case that two years before the end of the contract, you look in which direction it’s going: extend or sell?
“I signalled that I felt very comfortable and wanted to extend. In the meantime, many key players have extended their contracts.
“I’m very relaxed about it. What comes, comes, but I’m not waiting for an offer. There were inquiries from the Bundesliga and other major leagues before the extension. At the moment, I’m happy at Brentford.”
