Eriksen: Only Tottenham showed any genuine intent to buy

Former Ajax player Christian Eriksen says Tottenham were the only club he wanted to join when a choice had to be made. The 21 year old told Danish newspaper BT: "There were not that many clubs to choose from in the end and no-one were closer than Tottenham.

"There were a lot of rumours, but I only felt right about the approach from Tottenham. The club followed me for a long time and really showed intent.

"It was the whole package that attracted me. I spoke briefly with the manager and my impression is that he is a very good manager. The goal is to challenge for the title. That is what the club wants and that is what I want."
