I’m very excited – Brentford coach, Thomas Frank gives update on Ivan Toney


Brentford manager, Thomas Frank has revealed his excitement at the imminent return of striker, Ivan Toney as his eight-month gambling ban nears its conclusion.

Ivan was initially banned in May by the Football Association (FA) after he admitted to 232 breaches of their gambling regulations.
