Career

On 28 May 2019, Nørgaard moved to England to join Brentford on a four-year contract, with the option of an additional year, for an undisclosed fee, reported to be £2.8 million. Wanting to “fall in love with football again”, the move reunited Nørgaard with his former Denmark youth and Brøndby head coach Thomas Frank, who had initially made contact with him during the previous season. Used as a screening midfielder in front of the defense, Nørgaard made 45 appearances during the 2019–20 season, which ended with defeat in the 2020 Championship play-off final. In September 2020, he signed a new four-year contract, with the option of a further year.

Nørgaard began the 2020–21 season as a virtual ever-present in midfield and winning senior international recognition with Denmark, but an ankle injury suffered during a match versus Preston North End on 4 October 2020 prevented him from making only one appearance during the following four months. Nørgaard returned to the team in late February 2021 and late in the season he was deployed as the sweeper in a 3-5-2 formation. An injury restricted Nørgaard to only one appearance during Brentford’s 2021 playoff campaign, which culminated in promotion to the Premier League after a 2–0 victory over Swansea City in the Final. He finished the season with 22 appearances and one goal, scored in a 2–0 EFL Cup second-round win over Southampton early in the campaign.

Nørgaard scored his second Brentford career goal on the opening day of the 2021–22 season, in a 2–0 win over Arsenal. He continued as a virtual ever-present in Premier League matches and in late December 2021, he signed a new 3+12-year contract, with a one-year option. Nørgaard’s performances were recognized with the club’s Supporters’ and Players’ Player of the Year awards. He ended the 2021–22 season with 38 appearances, three goals, and having attempted the most tackles of any Premier League player.

Due to a knee problem suffered before Brentford’s final match of the 2021–22 season, Nørgaard missed much of Brentford’s 2022–23 pre-season, though he participated in the club’s training camp. He returned to match play for the final friendly of pre-season on 30 July 2022. Nørgaard was affected by a persistent Achilles problem during the regular season, which did not require surgery and after playing through pain mid-season, the issue seemed to resolve itself. He missed three months of the season and finished with 23 appearances and one goal. As vice-captain, many of his appearances came as captain, deputizing for the injured Pontus Jansson, who missed much of the season.

Following the departure of captain Pontus Jansson at the end of the 2022–23 season, Nørgaard took over the armband. During the 2023–24 pre-season, Nørgaard was left out of the club’s 2023 Premier League Summer Series squad, but he made a goalscoring return to match play in a behind-closed-doors friendly versus Lille on 5 August 2023.
