The 23-year-old Super Eagle has started in the last two games after joining the bees from FC Midtjylland in this transfer window
Brentford manager Thomas Frank has praised the new signing Frank Onyeka as they prepare to face Aston Villa in their third match in the Premier League campaign on Saturday.
The promoted side will travel to Villa Park, and coach Frank has admitted that some of his new acquisitions, including Nigeria international Onyeka, have already settled in well at the club.
“[The new signings] has settled down well, especially Kristoffer Ajer and Frank [Onyeka] who started the first two matches and did really well, ”said Thomas, the club’s official website.
“Yoane Wissa came in a little later, but we have high expectations of him and believe he can help us. He got 90 good minutes Tuesday night. Alvaro Fernandez is a good goalkeeper and you also have Myles Peart-Harris. They have found themselves at ease.
“I think we have a strong squad and a squad that can compete. I’m happy, but we’re always on the market. I can not say that one certainly does not come in, but I can not say that one certainly will come in. We are not desperate to get one in. We have built a squad that I think is strong enough and exciting enough to be competitive, but also has some interesting players for the future. ”
On their journey to meet Aston Villa, Thomas said: “We are very humble. Of course, we believe in ourselves and go into every game and believe that we can win. We believe we can go to Villa Park and get something out of it. Villa is a massive club and Dean Smith has done a fantastic job.
“They have invested heavily in the squad over the last three seasons. This summer, they lost Jack Grealish, but invested well in Danny Ings, Leon Bailey, Emi Buendia and Ashley Young.
“They’re building a team that can eventually be a top-eight team.”
The Bees opened their return to top-flight with a 2-0 win over Arsenal before forcing a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace.
