Christian Eriksen has been released from the Denmark squad and will not take part in fixtures during the current international break, according to reports.

Denmark’s senior players are currently locked in a dispute with the country’s Football Association over commercial rights, according to ESPN, and the likes of Eriksen, Kaspar Schmeichel and Andreas Christensen are all affected.

Eriksen was set to play against Slovakia and Wales over the next few days but will now remain with Tottenham in London as the dispute, which has apparently been going on since January, continues.

ESPN also claims Denmark could be exiled from Euro 2020 if they forfeit upcoming games, which would be a huge blow for Eriksen and his international teammates.

The 26-year-old enjoyed a fine season with Spurs last term and was subsequently linked with a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona for a second successive summer.

Hugo Lloris has also pulled out of international duty this week because of the thigh injury that saw him miss Sunday’s defeat at Watford.
