With the European transfer window having slammed shut yesterday, Christian Eriksen’s future remains at Tottenham Hotspur until at least January.

The Dane is in the last year of his contract at the North London club and has previously been vocal about his desire to seek a new challenge away from the Champions League finalists (Ekstra Bladet).

Eriksen was recalled to the Tottenham starting line up for the North London derby against Arsenal on Sunday and repaid Mauricio Pochettino’s faith in him by netting the opening goal in the 2-2 draw at the Emirates.

The 27-year-old told reporters at Denmark’s training camp in Marbella that he did not regret making the comments about wanting to leave Tottenham and instead reinforced that he wishes that he was in charge of his own future (Standard).

With his contract at Spurs expiring at the end of the season, Eriksen is able to discuss a pre-contract deal with foreign clubs from January before leaving on a free when his contract runs out.

“No, it wasn’t [wrong to speak out],” he told Danish outlet Ekstra Bladet.

“But it is football and you never know what happens in football. Many things always come into play. 

“I wish I could decide [my future] just like in the Football Manager [game], but unfortunately I can’t.

“I know a lot of people are interested in where to play. I understand that well,

“That’s the way it is. For me, it’s not been hard to clear my head. I don’t read much of what is written. And now I have been involved for many years, where there have been many rumours every year. But it’s clear that it’s been a little more violent this year because my contract is about to expire.”

Some Tottenham fans have been reacting on social media to the former Ajax player’s comments.
