Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is said to have recovered from his recent muscle problems sustained during the club’s Europa League clash with Dnipro last month, and has returned to training with the first team squad.

The Danish international was left out of his nation’s recent friendly at Wembley against England, with boss Martin Olsson promising Spurs boss Tim Sherwood that the 22-year-old would not be risked unless he “100% fit”. England went on to win the game 1-0 thanks to a late strike from Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge.

Eriksen recently stated that he is enjoying life in north London and would not seek a move away from White Hart Lane in the summer if Spurs fail to qualify for the Champions League, and instead remains focused on helping his employers attain as high a finish as possible by the end of the current Premier League campaign. The player was speaking after Spurs’ 4-0 loss at the hands of Chelsea in the league, with team-mate Jan Vertonghen insisting his future at the club may rely on Spurs’ achievements this season, but hopes to help the club into the top European club competition in any case.

He said: “I don't know how other guys are thinking, but I'm happy where I am, and hopefully we'll get to the Champions League anyway.

“I think it is important for the club, and the calibre of player that could come, or stay. I think everybody wants to go to the Champions League.

“I've tried it before at Ajax, and you see everything is bigger, the atmosphere, the TV rights, the people watching. The Europa League is great, but the Champions League is what everybody wants, it's the best place to play.”

The news of Eriksen’s return to fitness will provide a boost to Sherwood ahead of the Europa League last-16 clash with Benfica on Wednesday evening, with Spurs bidding to keep the trophy in London after Chelsea’s triumph in the tournament last season.

Eriksen will be completing the domestic season wearing the brand new Nike Magista boots, which launch in April. He could have been preparing to wear them in Brazil this summer in the 2014 World Cup, but Denmark narrowly missed out on a playoff place for qualification after finishing second in their group, just behind four-time World Cup winners Italy.

Eriksen began his senior career with Ajax in the Netherlands, having had trials with the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Man United, opting to remain with the club he had served as a youth player since moving from Odense BK in his homeland. He was called into the senior squad at Ajax in January 2010 – just two short months before making his senior debut for Denmark, winning the first of his 42 caps to date.

He moved to Spurs in August 2013, in a deal worth a reported £11m. He has been a popular figure at White Hart Lane this season, and his promised loyalty to the club even if they fall short of their hopes of Champions League qualification is sure to have sat well in the terraces.
