Christian Eriksen has branded stories claiming he could leave Tottenham as “strange” and says he is going nowhere.
The 24-year-old has become a key player for Spurs since moving to White Hart Lane from Ajax in 2013 and the club are thought to have offered the attacking midfielder a lucrative new contract in a bid to get him to commit his long-term future.
However, Eriksen’s agent Martin Schoots prompted fears Tottenham could lose the Denmark international on Friday when he claimed he would look to move his client on following the UK’s decision to vote to leave the European Union.
Schoots says the potential need for all non-British players in the Premier League to have work permits were Britain to leave the EU has put him off Eriksen remaining at White Hart Lane.
“We are underestimating the danger. The truth is that half the Premier League players will see their work permits turned into scrap paper. In a situation like this, I’d take my client away from Tottenham,” Schoots told Italian publication La Repubblica,
However, Eriksen has taken to Twitter to deny having spoken to his agent about a move away from north London, writing: “Strange news item!!! My agent never spoke about this EU subject. #coys #funnystories”
