Eriksen discusses possible new Tottenham contract – fans should be delighted

There is a feel-good factor around Tottenham Hotspur at the minute – it has been there for the last few years in truth.

Much of the credit must fall at the feet of manager Mauricio Pochettino, who has developed a cohesive squad of supremely gifted players that are hungry for success and silverware.

Arguably the most-gifted of them all is Christian Eriksen, with the Danish playmaker the man that makes the Tottenham side tick in attacking areas.

An intelligent footballer with a killer pass and an eye for goal, the former Ajax man is an automatic selection in Pochettino’s Spurs team when fit and available.

While talk of new Tottenham contracts for Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane has dominated column inches of late, over the weekend there has been speculation that Eriksen could also be in line for a new-and-improved deal.

The Spurs schemer has confirmed as much when talking to his native Danish press, speaking out about how content he is with life at the North London club.

“It’s up to the club whether they want to renegotiate or not,” the 25-year-old told TV3, as reported by Danish daily newspaper Berlingske.

“I know they have had a meeting and have talked together so that’s the right way. I’m happy at the club. There is nothing negative at all.”

While the Tottenham fans will rightly be desperate for Alderweireld and Kane to put pen to paper on new deals, extending Eriksen’s contract would be another piece of excellent news for Spurs.

The midfielder’s current deal does not expire until the summer of 2020, but pushing this out by another few years would be canny business by Daniel Levy and the Lilywhites hierarchy.

Eriksen’s comments of being happy at Tottenham are another testament to the togetherness of the Spurs squad that Pochettino has forged.

As such, with key players at another North London team agitating for transfers and refusing to sign contract extensions, it is refreshing to see that Eriksen is committed to Tottenham – with it looking like only a matter of time before he proves it by extending his stay at the club.
