English Premier League club Manchester United have secured the services of Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen on free transfer.
The former Tottenham forward is joining the Old Trafford club after signing a three-year contract.
“I still have major ambitions in the game. There is a huge amount that I know I can achieve, and this is the perfect place to continue my journey,” Eriksen, 30, said.
“Manchester United is a special club, and I cannot wait to get started.”
Ripples Nigeria recalls that Eriksen had a cardiac arrest while playing for his national team in the rescheduled 2020 Euro.
The forward has Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) fitted following medication after the on-field trouble.
He then joined Brentford January after being released by Inter Milan because players who have an ICD fitted are not allowed to play in Serie A.
Eriksen has scored 52 goals and provided 66 assists in 237 Premier League appearances for Tottenham and Brentford.
