Mikel Damsgaard’s move to Brentford is being held up by his agent’s refusal to accept a 50% wage reduction if they are relegated.

That’s according to Il Secolo XIX, relayed by Samp News 24, who explain why the forward’s move is yet to be finalised.

They report that ‘everything is done and ready’ for the player to make the move to Brentford this summer.

Sampdoria already ‘closed the negotiations’ for the young Danish talent two days ago and are only waiting for the go-ahead from his agent. That, though, is ‘slow in coming’.

The Italian side need the money from the sale to close their own transfer business and this stalemate is concerning them.

The block is being caused by Damsgaard’s agent, who is ‘contesting’ a clause in the contract proposed by Brentford.

They want to include an option for Damsgaard’s wages to be reduced by 50% should they be relegated this season but the player’s representative is not happy with that.

It’s suggested he wants it out of negotiations completely.

Thus he is ‘obstructing’ the move, for the time being, looking to find an agreement that suits him and Brentford.
