Brentford goalkeeper Ellery Balcombe has returned from his loan-spell with Danish side Viborg FF.
The 20-year-old joined the Danish NordicBet Liga outfit in the summer on a season-long loan. He quickly became the club’s no.1 with some solid performances in-goal, but has since returned to Griffin Park having suffered an injury.
His injury is as yet unknown, but it’s thought to be a fairly serious one with Thomas Frank deciding to recall Balcombe.
Viborg have just restarted their domestic season after the winter break. Balcombe had kept Viborg in the title-race throughout the first-half of the season with his performances, and has even represented Aidy Boothroyd’s Young Lions this season in their European Championship Qualification fixtures.
Balcombe missed Viborg’s last three games before the winter break due to suspension, and has today arrived back in West London to begin his recovery.
