Christian Eriksen admitted he is happy to still be a Tottenham player – but wants to move on from the transfer rumours.
The 27-year-old, who is currently on international duty with Denmark, planning for their Euro 2020 against Gibraltar on Friday, has entered the final year of his Spurs contract and is now available to leave the club on a free transfer – with his current deal expiring in June.
Eriksen was the subject of reported interest from both Real Madrid and Juventus, but neither ending up making a move, meaning the former Ajax man ended up staying at Spurs after the European transfer window officially closed last night.
Danish journalist Andreas Kraul spoke to the midfielder in Marbella as Eriksen and Denmark prepare for Friday’s game – and the midfielder is happy to stay with the North London out, despite saying earlier this summer that he wanted a new challenge, but didn’t want to discuss his ongoing transfer saga.
