Mokotjo, who had been recovering from a serious injury prior to the league's suspension, was reportedly subjected to a fitness test before Brentford committed to a new deal, and will now be available to help his team's charge towards a promotion play-off spot.

"We are very pleased to extend Kamohelo's contract," head coach Thomas Frank added.

"He has worked very hard to come back from his injury, and will be ready and fit for selection against Fulham. We need The General's experience, coolness and passing ability as we head into the last part of the season.

"He is so reliable and adds so much to the group, both in training and matches. You can see when he steps on to the pitch how it raises the levels of those around him."
