B Team sign Christian Tue Jensen on season-long loan

Young midfielder heads to West London for 19/20 season

22 June 2019

Brentford B have confirmed the signing of Christian Tue Jensen on a season-long loan deal from FC Midtjylland, subject to international clearance.

The agreement between the two clubs includes a mid-season break clause that could see the 19-year-old return to Denmark.

Last summer, Christian put pen to paper on a five-year contract with his parent club. That was after a successful season for the youth side, the attacking midfielder scoring nine goals on their route to the 2018 domestic title.

He also played a part in their UEFA Youth League campaign, which saw them get to the Quarter-Finals after knocking out Manchester United in the previous round. 

During his time in Denmark, Christian also came up against our current Assistant Head Coach Brian Riemer, while the latter was a youth coach at FC Copenhagen.

Christian is the third player to make the temporary switch between Midtjylland's Under-19s and Brentford B, following last year's loan of Nikolaj Kirk and this season's fellow new signing Japhet Sery Larsen.

B Team Assistant Coach Allan Steele said: "Christian is an exciting talent, who can play in midfield or as a centre-forward, and shows superb control with both feet. I believe coming to us will be a great step in his development as a player and as a person. He is someone we know will bring quality both on and off the field."
