Christian Eriksen has once again refused to be drawn on his future at Tottenham Hotspur after being quizzed on international duty.

The playmaker scored a brace of penalties and provided an assist in Denmark’s 6-0 win against Gibraltar on Thursday evening.

While he may currently be away from North London, questions are still being asked by media outlets from his homeland on his current situation at the Champions League finalists.

Eriksen revealed in early June that he was keen to leave the club to try a new challenge whilst also admitting that a move to Real Madrid would be of interest to him (Ekstra Bladet).

The 27-year-old now has under a year to run on his existing contract with Spurs facing the prospect of losing one of their star players for free next summer

Spurs are said to have offered Eriksen a new contract worth around £200,000 a week but has not put pen to paper on the extension (The Sun).

When asked by BT about his future, Eriksen said: “We still can’t talk about it. I focus on the national team and, as I said, I am Tottenham player,”

Pushed further for information on whether he is in talks with Tottenham about extending his six-year spell at the club, he responded with silence according to the report.


Eriksen should at some stage let the fans know if it is intention to remain at the club or not.  The uncertainty over his future is certainly proving to be too much of a distraction.
