Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has welcomed their deal for Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen.

The Dane was signed last week by Spurs.

"Christian Eriksen is a wonderfully creative player, who is accustomed to playing at a high level in Europe. He showed at Ajax all of his qualities and ability, particularly in terms of flair and creativity with the number of chances and assists he provided to his teammates. He has great ability to pick a pass and is an excellent link-up player," AVB told the Spurs website.

"We can look ahead to the season with a real sense of excitement. These new additions will join with our already strong group of talented players and further enhance the quality and spirit that exists within this squad."
