Christian Eriksen has signed a contract extension with Tottenham, the club announced on Tuesday afternoon.

The 24-year-old Denmark midfielder has committed himself to Spurs until 2020.

Mauricio Pochettino has personally intervened to help ensure Christian Eriksen signs a new contract with the club.

Eriksen and his agent had been locked in talks with Spurs since March but a breakthrough was finally made.

Negotiations remained cordial throughout the summer but they had reached a stalemate last month, before Pochettino persuaded both sides they needed to come to a resolution.

Eriksen, signed from Dutch club Ajax in August 2013, said in an interview with Spurs TV posted on the club’s official Twitter feed: “There is a great future at this place and I wouldn’t have signed if I didn’t see that.”

There were rumours circulating over the past few weeks claiming that Eriksen was demanding a £150,000-a-week deal, but the new deal is said to be worth around £70,000-a-week which puts him in the top bracket of earners at White Hart Lane.
