According to a report in the Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are to offer Christian Eriksen a new contract which will keep him at White Hart Lane for the next four years.
The Denmark international joined Spurs from Ajax in the summer of 2013, a deal which was partly funded from the money received through the Gareth Bale sale to Real Madrid.
Eriksen was one of seven permanent signings that summer, though he is only one of three to still be plying his trade at White Hart Lane as in hindsight it wasn’t an impressive outlay by the club.
The 23-year-old has gradually become a predominant figure at Tottenham, this season scoring two goals and adding a further three assists in only six Premier League starts.
While he still has two-and-a-half years to run on his current deal, fresh reports state the club are eager to improve his contract to ensure his general contentment in North London.
“Tottenham are to offer Christian Eriksen a new contract that will keep the Danish star at White Hart Lane for the next four years. Talks are likely to start soon about extending his stay with a further two years added to his contract,” the report in the Mirror says.
Since joining the club in 2013, Eriksen has featured 93 times in all competitions, scoring 25 goals.
He was awarded the Tottenham Player of the Year award at the end of the 2013/14 campaign while being named the Danish Footballer of the Year for the last two successive seasons.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino rates him extremely highly and his importance at the club couldn’t be more apparent.
