Brentford are set to sign Frank Onyeka from FC Midtjylland subject to a work permit.

The 23-year-old has agreed to join the Bees from their sister club in Denmark following positive talks.

Onyeka - a Nigeria international - is likely to remain in Denmark during the work-permit process, where he can complete a medical and stay fit with his current club until it is issued.
