Brentford midfielder Josh Dasilva has recently been linked with a move to Premier League side West Ham United according to The Guardian.
Dasilva has been a regular in Thomas Frank’s side this season, as they look to go one step further than last year’s campaign by winning promotion into the Premier League.
The Bees are currently sat fourth in the Championship table, and Dasilva’s strong run of performances has seen the Hammers register their interest in his services.
Speaking in a recent interview (quotes sourced from West London Sport), Dasilva spoke out on the rumours linking him with a move elsewhere.
“You just carry on and focus on what I can deal with.
“We are fourth in the league, in a semi-final and were two points from being automatically promoted last year.
“I am enjoying my football and it’s just about focusing on the next game, which is Tottenham. That is where I’m at.”
Brentford boss Thomas Frank has previously revealed that no players will leave the club in the January transfer window, and that none of his squad want to depart anytime soon.
“I understand why Premier League clubs will approach, because we have some very good players. No players will leave us in January. That’s not an option. They enjoy playing for Brentford and we are enjoying the journey.
“None of the players want to leave us and we definitely don’t want to let them go.”
Dasilva and his Brentford team-mates are set to return to action on Tuesday evening, when they take on Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-final of the EFL Cup.

It’ll be interesting to see if they can keep hold of him.
It’s good to hear that Dasilva is focused on the task at hand with Brentford, as I think he’ll play a starring role in any potential promotion push this season.
Thomas Frank has already stated his eagerness to keep hold of his key players, and Dasvila is certainly one of them at this moment in time.
Dasilva will surely be attracting interest from other clubs in the summer, especially if he can guide Brentford into the Premier League this term.
