Manager Thomas Frank sends message to Chelsea over their interest in £100m striker

Brentford boss, Thomas Frank has warned Chelsea that the club will always have the final say on whether or not a player gets to leave, despite Chelsea’s well-documented interest in Ivan Toney.

Chelsea, among a number of other top Premier league clubs have been keeping tabs on Toney, with Chelsea linked with a January swoop for the 27-year-old.

The 27-year-old had been away from competitive football for almost a year after he was handed an eight-month ban by the Premier League for his involvement in betting activities.

It is believed that Chelsea, along with rivals, Arsenal and Manchester United still hold an interest in the England striker, and may make a move to sign him in the summer, but his coach, Frank has made it abundantly clear he may not be going anywhere after all.

“Happy? Yes, but I was pretty sure as I said from the beginning that Ivan will stay with us so I was not worried about that,” Brentford boss Frank said about Toney.

“In general, it is nice to know what you are working with so in that situation, yes [I am happy].

“At the end of the day we decide if they leave or not.”

Toney, who scored 20 goals for Brentford last season, is reportedly valued somewhere around £100m.
