Christian Eriksen has moved to clear the air with Tottenham fans after reports suggested he was demanding a huge hike in wages.
The winger has been negotiating a new contract with the club for months, with widespread reports that he would not sign until he was made the highest-paid player at White Hart Lane.
It was initially thought that when manager Mauricio Pochettino committed his future to the North Londoners towards the end of last season, the number 23 would follow suit, but that hasn't so far been the case.

The Telegraph, among others, had it that the Denmark international was asking for £150,000 a week, a sum which is unprecedented at Spurs.
Their highest earner, captain Hugo Lloris, is on just over £80,000 a week.
However, following their opening day 1-1 draw away to Everton, Eriksen was one of a number of Spurs stars to express their disappointment with the result via social media, also having a cheeky dig at the newspapers who had made the claims:
The Lilywhites were somewhat fortunate to escape Merseyside with a point after a woeful first half performance, though Mauricio Pochettino's hairdryer treatment clearly worked as they were much improved after the interval.
Spurs lacking alternatives
It's going to be vital that they keep hold of Eriksen as the apparent collapse of Georges-Kevin N'Koudou's move from Marseille has left Spurs without many options down the wing.
Fans will no doubt be pleased that the midfielder has rubbished rumours of unrest, but they will be even happier when he actually puts pen to paper.
