Eriksen reveals talks over new Tottenham contract

The Denmark international joined the club from Ajax in 2013 and has established himself as a key member of Mauricio Pochettino's first-team since his arrival in north London
Christian Eriksen says he has entered into negotiations with Tottenham over a new contract and has expressed his desire to stay at the club.

Eriksen - who scored twice in the 4-1 win over Sunderland on Saturday - has played a key role in Spurs’ promising season to date, making 25 appearances in all competitions as they have consolidated their position in the top four of the Premier League and reached the knockout stages of the Europa League.

Reports had suggested that Eriksen had held talks with manager Mauricio Pochettino over his desire to be returned to his preferred No.10 role after spending much of the campaign on the wing, but the Dane insists that he expects to put pen to paper.

"We are talking [about a contract], so it is coming, yes,” he told reporters.

"Well, it looks positive. As I said, of course there's a while yet, and I do not think there are any of us who are busy as such.

"I am very happy to be here. I enjoy every second and I hope, also I try to prove on the field."

Eriksen’s current contract expires in 2018 and he has been continually linked with a move away from the club, with both PSG and Juventus touted as potential destinations for the 23-year-old.
