A deal had been agreed for £25.6million with the 18-year-old expected to return to Belgium for the season.

Tottenham were very close to landing Nusa, but the attacker believes his pathway into first-team football will be less restrictive at Brentford.

He has made a total of 64 appearances for the club since joining from Norwegian side Stabaek in the summer of 2021.
