Winks: Tottenham players relieved Eriksen staying

Harry Winks admits Tottenham's players were relieved Christian Eriksen did not leave before Monday's transfer deadline.

Eriksen will remain at Spurs until at least January after failing to secure a move before the summer shut.

Asked if the squad was relieved he had stayed, team-mate Winks said: “Yes, of course. Christian's a fantastic player, there's no doubt about that.

"He's been one of our most impressive performers over the last few years. Christian's a top person and whatever he decides, that's up to him.

"All we can say is how well he's performed for us this season and how professional he is. He's fantastic."
