Several clubs were interested in the 18-year-old, including Tottenham and Chelsea.

But Brentford pushed hardest to sign him and agreed a reported club-record £23.5million fee with Club Brugge.

However, the deal has collapsed with the Bees pulling the plug after discovering knee and back problems as he underwent a medical.

Reporter Ben Jacobs claims the knee issue is “potentially quite serious”.

The two clubs are set to continue talks tomorrow but a transfer in this window is now unlikely.

Nusa has been touted as a future star and already has four Norway caps.

The wonderkid has scored four goals in 28 appearances this season.

Brentford could turn their attention to Said Benrahma as an alternative.


The West Ham ace has been linked with a return to his former club after falling out of favour at the Hammers.

However, SunSport can exclusively reveal that Lyon have agreed a £15m deal for the Algerian.
