Brentford midfielder Josh Dasilva has signed a new one-year contract, with a club option for an additional 12 months.

Dasilva has made 157 appearances for the Bees since signing for the club in August 2018, scoring 22 goals.

The Arsenal academy graduate has been restricted to five appearances this season and had surgery in February after suffering a significant knee injury in training.

Dasilva was also sidelined from February 2021 to February 2022 with a hip issue.

Phil Giles, Brentford director of football, said: “Josh has been so unlucky with injuries in recent seasons and hasn’t played anything like the number of matches he’d have wanted to.

“This makes him and us even more determined to get him back to full health – he has shown amazing mental strength and resilience to take this latest setback in his stride.

“At his best, Josh is a very good Premier League player with attributes that are hard to find elsewhere. I’m sure he’ll be back playing at some point in the 2024/25 season, and we can’t wait for that to happen.”

The 25-year-old made 36 Premier League appearances during the 2022/23 campaign, scoring four goals and providing two assists.

He played an instrumental role in the Bees’ 2020/21 promotion-winning campaign, with nine goal contributions (5G, 4A) in 30 Sky Bet Championship outings.
