Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen has denied recent reports – by the likes of The Sun - that Britain’s decision to leave the EU could result in him seeking a move away from White Hart Lane.

The Sun’s report yesterday quoted Eriksen’s agent, Martin Schoots as saying:

“We are underestimating the danger… the truth is that half the Premier League players will see their work permits turned into scrap paper. In a situation like this, I’d take my client away from Tottenham.”

However the Danish playmaker was quick to deny there was any truth to these claims via Twitter.

The story did indeed seem a strange one and Spurs fans will now be able to rest easy in the knowledge that one of their star men isn’t seeking an imminent move away.

Eriksen has yet to extend his contract after it emerged he was in talks with the club earlier this year – as reported by the Daily Star - and one theory surrounding the exit quotes could be that it was a simple bargaining ploy to be used during contract negotiations.

The 24-year old’s tweet has put an end to that however and Spurs will be confident of securing his future in the coming weeks.

Tottenham made their first signing of the summer in Victor Wanyama yesterday and will now look to strengthen in other areas of the pitch, as well as tying their key men into fresh deals.
