Eriksen seals move to Spurs

Tottenham reportedly paid Ajax around 100 million kroner for the midfielder, making him the dearest Danish purchase in history

The Christian Eriksen transfer saga is finally over after he agreed terms with Premier League challengers Tottenham Hotspur yesterday evening.

The London club, who are keen to challenge for a Champions League spot this season after narrowly missing out last year, reportedly paid Dutch club Ajax around 100 million kroner for the 21-year-old, making him the most expensive Danish purchase in history.

“Everyone has witnessed Tottenham’s development and that is something that I want to be a part of,” Eriksen wrote on Twitter.

Eriksen, who has 37 caps for Denmark, won three league titles in a row with Ajax and is considered one of the brightest talents of his generation.

The attacking midfielder moved to Amsterdam from Odense in 2008 and played 161 matches for the Eredivisie side, netting 33 goals. In 2011 he was vote the Dutch Football Talent of the Year and Ajax Talent of the Year.
