Eriksen not about to jump ship at Tottenham

Christian Eriksen insists he is not about to look for a way out at Tottenham if they fail to finish in the top four this season.

The Denmark international is beginning to make an impact at White Hart Lane following a slow start to life in north London after joining from Ajax in the summer.

Recently, Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen suggested he could be forced to exit if the club did not secure Champions League football but Eriksen is no looking to jump ship if that goal is not achieved.

"I don't know how other guys are thinking, but I'm happy where I am, and hopefully we'll get to the Champions League anyway," he said.

"I think it is important for the club, and the calibre of player that could come, or stay.

"I think everybody wants to go to the Champions League.

"I've tried it before at Ajax, and you see everything is bigger, the atmosphere, the TV rights, the people watching.

"The Europa League is great, but the Champions League is what everybody wants, it's the best place to play."
