Eriksen open to leaving Spurs
Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen has stated he is open to leaving Tottenham this summer. The Dane stated that should he leave, it would be for a club that is a step up to Spurs.
He also stated that he hopes for clarity regarding his situation and that it is now time for a new challenge in his career.
"If I have to go, then hopefully it will be a step up. I hope there will be a clarification during the summer. That's the plan. I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new.”
He then added that he has a lot of respect for the Londoners but he is seeking clarification about everything and wants it soon from Daniel Levy.
"I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham.
"But in football you do not know when clarification comes. It can happen any time."
"Everyone wants it as soon as possible, but in football things take time. It depends on [Spurs chairman] Daniel Levy," Eriksen added.
The Dane also stated that another club must be interested in him for him to make the leap, which is why he can’t put a date on anything. He is also open to staying at Spurs if no big club is interested in him.
"And another club has to come in, or I have to sit down at the table and negotiate a new contract. You can't set a date yourself.
"If nothing pops up that is more exciting, then why not stay in Tottenham? If I then sign a new contract, it depends on the conditions."
