Published Add your comment

Since signing for Tottenham in 2013 from Ajax, Christian Eriksen has been a resounding success at White Hart Lane.

The Dane's match-winning goal against Manchester City last weekend was arguably his most important in a Spurs shirt and typified the impressive season he is enjoying thus far.

Eriksen's value has undoubtedly increased during his time in north London, so much so that Tottenham want their midfield maestro to sign a new contract with the club worth £50,000-per-week, according to the Independent.

The club and player are reportedly close to agreeing a contract extension that would see the latter stay at White Hart Lane until 2020, with his current deal expiring in two years.

Talking to Sky Sports following his side's victory at the Etihad, Eriksen said: "We're still talking about the contract. It's all positive. I think everyone can see that I can fulfil my ambitions here.

The Denmark international has played a vital role in Tottenham's Premier League title bid this season, and alongside Harry Kane looks capable of steering the Lilywhites to the top.

"We're still not there, we're still far from winning the league. There are a lot of games to go," he continued.

"We need to be really sharp and continue what we're doing. We have a lot of good players, even on the bench.

"The players we brought on are top, top quality and the ones who are not playing are still doing a really good job.

"We always believe in scoring goals. We are relaxed. We know when we need to go forward and when we need to stay calm."

Eriksen has five goals and eight assists so far in the Premier League, just two goals short of his best tally of seven during his debut season.
