Tottenham Hotspur are now 25 days into the January transfer window and have made one addition to their squad in the form of Gedson Fernandes on loan from Benfica.

However, one major outgoing that has been rumoured for some time is still at the North London club, as the Christian Eriksen transfer saga rolls on.

Eriksen has under six months left on his Spurs contract and there have been no reports indicating that a new deal is on the table.

This means that January could well be Tottenham’s last chance to get some money for the player, rather than losing him on a free at the end of the season.

Recent reports have indicated that Eriksen is on the verge of a move to Inter Milan, with personal terms having been agreed that will see him earn up to £320,000 per week (Sky Sports). However, the Sun add that Spurs have not yet given the green light.

In his press conference today, Mourinho seemed unhappy with the situation, but claimed that Eriksen had dealt with it like a professional and Spurs were not to blame.

He said (Football London): “I just want to say that this situation shouldn’t happen on the 25th of January. And it is not Tottenham’s fault that on the 25th of January we are in the situation.

“The only thing I can say is Eriksen, since I arrive, he is behaving in a very, very professional way, with me and the team. Tottenham is the last one to blame for this situation, but to be on the 25th of January in a situation like this is not nice.”
