Bryan Mbeumo has signed a new four-year contract to stay at Brentford until summer 2026.
Mbeumo first joined Brentford from French club, ES Troyes AC in August 2019 and has gone on to establish himself in the senior team with 31 goals in 199 appearances across all competitions.
The 22 year-old also formed part of the Bees’ promotion winning team via last season’s Championship Play-Offs, having formed a solid partnership with Ivan Toney which has continued into this season after previously impressing alongside Said Benrahma and Ollie Watkins.
Brentford manager, Thomas Frank has praised Mbeumo for his commitment to the Bees following his decision to sign a new contract, like Frank himself did earlier this week.
Speaking about Mbeumo’s new contract, Frank said: “I am very pleased that Bryan has decided to extend his contract with us. He has been an important player for us since he arrived in 2019.
“He had a fantastic first season in the Championship and just as good a follow-up year last season, as he developed other parts of his game. His Premier League performances have been even more impressive.”
During the Bees’ inaugural Premier League campaign, Mbeumo has scored seven goals and provided three assists in all competitions, as well as hit the woodwork on seven separate occasions.
Frank though has iterated that Mbeumo remains an impressive part of Brentford’s attack as he added: “As everyone knows, Bryan has hit the woodwork seven times this season. Margins have gone against him, but he has given us a lot. He has been a constant threat to our opponents.
“I am also very pleased that we have a chance to maximise Bryan’s potential. We are only seeing the start of what he will be able to produce. He has a brilliant future in front of him.”
Brentford will have an option to exercise an one-year extension to Mbeumo’s new contract and keep the Frenchman in West London until summer 2027 if the club and him wish to do so.
