Eriksen plays down Tottenham link

Christian Eriksen, AjaxAjax starlet Christian Eriksen has dismissed rumours of a move to Tottenham.

The Danish star has been attracting the attention of a number of Premier League teams lately, including Manchester United and Liverpool.

However, a move Spurs has been the most talked about, with White Hart Lane defender Jan Vertonghen urging his ex-team-mate to join him in North London.

Despite this, Eriksen suggested the rumours were mere speculation, reiterating his commitment to Ajax:

“I have read that, but it is just a rumour.” He is quoted by SkySports.

“It also depends on what Ajax want, but I hope and believe that I will finish the season at Ajax.”

But, the 20-year-old did admit that he could be interested in leaving the Dutch capital in the future:

“One day I will take that step, but I don’t know when.

“Of course, it also depends on which clubs are interested at that time.”

Although Eriksen insists that he is happy at the Amsterdam Arena, his current contract is set to expire in 2014, which leaves lingering doubts surrounding his future.

Tottenham could take advantage of this to fill the creative void left by Luka Modric, who joined Real Madrid over the summer.
