Spurs Confirm Eriksen Arrival

Tottenham Hotspur closed off a busy day in the transfer market by completing the signing of Christian Eriksen from Ajax Amsterdam for an undisclosed fee.

The Denmark playmaker followed Vlad Chiriches and Erik Lamela in completing a switch to White Hart Lane on Friday as Spurs continue their impressive signing spree.

It is suggested that Lamela and Eriksen were the final two signings that the English Premier League side wanted to make before allowing star winger Gareth Bale to depart for Real Madrid for a world-record fee.

Tottenham confirmed the capture of 21-year-old Eriksen via a statement on the club's official website, which read, "We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Ajax for the transfer of Christian Eriksen.

"The Denmark international moved to Ajax in 2008 from Odense in his homeland and has since gone on to play a total of 161 games for the Eredivisie club scoring 33 times.

"The attacking midfielder, capped 37 times by his country, enjoyed great success during his time in Amsterdam, winning three consecutive Dutch league championships between 2011 and 2013, as well as being named Dutch Football Talent of the Year and Ajax Talent of the Year in 2011. He was also voted Danish Football Player of the Year that same year."
