Yoane Wissa, a forward for Brentford, has agreed to a new contract that will keep him in West London through at least June 2026.
Wissa has played in all 34 of Brentford’s Premier League games despite only getting 13 starts in the top flight this season, scoring five goals and dishing out two assists.
The attacker has signed a new three-year contract with an option for a fourth year, according to Brentford.
Thomas Frank, the manager of Brentford, expressed his happiness about the news of Wissa’s extension to the club’s official website.
I’m thrilled that Wissa has agreed to a new contract, said Frank. “Since he joined, he has been a fantastic addition to the team.
“He’s a very good player who has demonstrated his ability to score goals in the Premier League.”
Having a player like him on the team is huge.
“He is a constant goal threat, is good in the back, and can link up.”
He can transition from striker to winger with ease.
Additionally, he is great for the culture of the group. He always brings enthusiasm and a smile, which greatly advances the team.
He’s a joy to work with.”

Only Ivan Toney has scored more Premier League goals for Brentford since Wissa’s arrival from Lorient in August 2021 than the Democratic Republic of Congo international, who has found the net 12 times in 64 top-flight appearances.
The 26-year-old has appeared in 70 competitive games for the Bees, scoring 15 goals and assisting on four others.
Wissa, who came on as a substitute in Brentford’s 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest last weekend, will be vying for a starting spot when the Bees travel to Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday.
With four points separating them from the top six, the Bees, who are currently in ninth place, still have a remote chance of securing European football.
