Just In!! Brentford boss sends Spur Manager transfer message over their target

Thomas Frank has declared he understands why Brentford supporters may be fearing the departure of Ivan Toney after their banned talisman switched agents. The development has surfaced just days after the England international detailed his desire to explore a new challenge should the right opportunity present itself as he outlined his admiration for both Liverpool and Arsenal.

Toney will be free to return to action on January 17 after he was slapped with an eight-month ban for breaching the FA’s betting regulations.

But it appears he is open to leaving Brentford as the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United weigh up a winter swoop for his services.

Brentford would value Toney at close to £80million but even still, they do not plan on letting Toney depart as he remains key to their future plans.

Nonetheless, Bees boss Frank acknowledges that Toney’s decision to switch agents to CAA Stellar is likely to spark concern in west London.

Frank said on Friday: “Yes I can understand fans might be worried – but they are probably worried about a lot of our players.

“There are only maybe six clubs or less that are not selling clubs. And we are a selling club, at the right price. And in this market that is a very big price.

“And what may have done for him…that goes both ways. He has done a lot for us. It has been a fantastic partnership and still is. I expect him to play for us in January.

“Ivan is such a good player that has performed so well for us that you can understand other clubs looking at him and thinking ‘he is good’. Even not playing.
