Career

On 10 July 2019, Jensen moved to England signing with Championship club Brentford on a four-year contract, with the option of an additional year, for an undisclosed fee, reported to be £3.5 million. He made 43 appearances and scored one goal during the 2019–20 season, which ended with defeat in the 2020 Championship play-off final. Jensen made a career-high 53 appearances during the 2020–21 season and celebrated promotion to the Premier League with victory in the 2021 Championship play-off final.

As a result of suffering a “badly gashed” foot while away on international duty, Jensen missed Brentford’s entire 2021–22 pre-season and the first three matches of the regular season. Restricted to a mix of starting and substitute roles, particularly after the January 2022 signing of Christian Eriksen, Jensen made 35 appearances during a “stop-start” season. Despite being affected by COVID-19 and another minor injury, Jensen won praise from head coach Thomas Frank for training “like an animal” while sidelined.

Entering the final year of his contract, Jensen hired his trainer to work with him daily during the off-season in Denmark and he returned for the 2022–23 pre-season “in incredible shape”. He was challenged by head coach Thomas Frank to be the replacement for the departed Christian Eriksen. Jensen began the regular season in a starting role and as a regular set piece taker. Coaching from specialist throw-in coach Thomas Gronnemark helped length his throws. 

Jensen’s performance and first Premier League goal in a 4–0 win over Manchester United on 13 August 2022 was recognized with the Man of the Match award. On 18 January 2022, Jensen signed a new 3+12-year contract, with the option of a further year. Head coach Thomas Frank commended Jensen’s “pressing abilities”, and “his defensive mindset” and stated that “he has been one of our best players so far this season”. In the process of winning his 23rd cap for Denmark in a Euro 2024 qualifier versus Finland on 23 March 2023, Jensen became Brentford’s most-capped international player. Until missing the final match of the season, Jensen was an ever-present starter in league matches and he improved his goal tally to five.

International career

Jensen made 30 appearances and scored 3 goals for Denmark between U18 and U21 level. He was a part of Denmark’s squads at the 2017 and 2019 European U21 Championships. Jensen was named in the senior team’s preliminary 35-man squad for the 2018 World Cup, but he was not included in the final squad. In October 2020, Jensen won a late call-up to the full Denmark squad for a series of three matches, as a replacement for injured Brentford teammate Christian Nørgaard. He made his full international debut with a start in a 4–0 friendly win over the Faroe Islands on 7 October and scored his first full international goal on his fifth cap, in a 8–0 2022 World Cup qualifying win over Moldova on 28 March 2021.

Jensen was named in the Denmark squad for Euro 2020 and he appeared as a substitute in each of the six matches during the Danes’ run to the semi-final. Jensen was named in Denmark’s 2022 World Cup squad and made two appearances before the team’s group stage exit.
