Christian Eriksen, the Ajax midfielder said to be a target of a number of Premier League clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Liverpool, will remain with the Netherlands club until at least the end of the season, according to Sky
Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen called recently for his former teammate Eriksen to follow him to White Hart Lane, after Vertonghen made the same journey in the summer, but while Eriksen is aware of the speculation linking him with Spurs, he insists his immediate future is with his current employers.
Eriksen said: “I have read that, but it is just a rumour. It also depends on what Ajax want, but I hope and believe that I will finish the season at Ajax.” The Denmark international however added that he is unlikely to remain with Ajax in perpetuity, but will only make the move when the time is right – and to the right club.
“One day I will take that step, but I don’t know when. Of course, it also depends on which clubs are interested at that time,” the 20-year-old continued.
Eriksen initially joined Ajax as a youth team player in 2008, joining the first team in 2010 and making his senior debut in January of the same year, under current Fulham manager Martin Jol. Eriksen eventually established himself in the Ajax first team and has gone on to become a regular at international level, winning more than two dozen caps and competing at Euro 2012.
