Christian Eriksen has signed a new contract, keeping him at Spurs until 2020.
The Dane’s wages will increase from £30,000 to £75,000-a-week. Eriksen’s decision ends a lengthy negotiation period and sees him become one of the top earners at the club.
“There is a great future at this place and I wouldn’t have signed if I didn’t see that,” said the 24-year old.
“It’s a very good group, players who connect with each other, staff who connect with the players.
“We all have an idea of where we want to end, and hopefully we’ll achieve that.”
Tottenham fans were quick to celebrate another major talent committing their future to the club. Here’s how they reacted on Twitter.

Great news re Eriksen's new contract. Just need to get Vertonghen to sign a contract extension & then we're good #COYS

Kane, Lamela, Jan etc will rightly want parity with Eriksen. Very important to have pay parity to ensure harmony in the group.

Eriksen deserves that contract more than anyone. Stuck around when he could've got a bigger move. People doubting him can do one #COYS
