Agent: Why Eriksen chose to stick with Spurs

The agent of Christian Eriksen says he's delighted with his new deal.

Eriksen has finally signed a four-year contract, worth about £75,000 a week, after more than a year of negotiations.

His representative Martin Schoots said: “Christian is just very happy at Spurs, as a player and as a person. He and his girlfriend moved house a month ago, which you don't do in the middle of the transfer window if you have doubts about where your happiness is.

“He wanted to move to Tottenham three years ago, even when other clubs were interested in that period, including a big German club who could guarantee Champions League football. But he was convinced about Spurs, and he still is.

“He is looking forward to playing in the Champions League again and to playing in the new stadium in two years' time. It's just a great fit."
