After endless rumour and speculation linking Christian Eriksen with numerous clubs across Europe this summer, the Danish midfielder felt the move to Tottenham was the right choice for him.

Eriksen, who made the switch from Eredivisie giants Ajax, said Tottenham were the only club to show the required level of interest to secure his services during this summer's transfer window.

Eriksen told Scandinavian newspaper BT: "There were not that many clubs to choose from in the end and no-one were closer than Tottenham.

"I only felt right about the approach from Tottenham. The club followed me for a long time and really showed intent."

Tottenham dug in deep to acquire the 21-year-old and Eriksen accepts that he may have to be patient at White Hart Lane and wait for a regular first-team role to become available but claims he shares the club's aims for the season ahead. 

"It was the whole package that attracted me. I spoke briefly with the manager and my impression is that he is a very good manager. The goal is to challenge for the title. That is what the club wants and that is what I want," he added.

Eriksen, who has already won 37 caps for his native Denmark, is understood to have made the move to North London for a fee of around £11.5m.
