Eriksen is a player who despite his relative young age has good experince who has won 3 consecutive Eredivisie titles and has previously played in the Champions League. Eriksen has been widely regarded as one of the brightest young prospects in world football.
When speaking about his move to Spurs, Eriksen said: "Everyone has followed the development of Spurs and it's something I want to be part of."
With the signing of Eriksen it appears that Spurs' rebuilding is now complete giving Gareth Bale's move to Real Madrid the go ahead although the deal won't be completed until after the North London derby this sunday.
