Tottenham's move for Ajax playmaker Christian Eriksen is "as good as final", according to the Dutch club's manager Frank de Boer.

Spurs completed a deal to bring Erik Lamela to White Hart Lane from Roma earlier today, and they've been tipped to move for Eriksen as well before the transfer window closes on Monday.

And de Boer has admitted the Denmark international is set to join Tottenham, although the deal is yet to receive final confirmation.

As reported by Sky Sports, de Boer said: "The only thing missing is the signature. The transfer of Eriksen to Tottenham is as good as final."

The Ajax playmaker has just one year left on his contract at the Dutch giants, and is expected to join Spurs for a fee in the region of £12m.

Eriksen has impressed for Ajax, helping the club to two consecutive Eredivisie championships.

He's scored 27 goals in 122 appearances for the club in three years in the first team.

A number of Premier League clubs were said to be chasing his signature earlier this year, but Tottenham look to have won the race.
