Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has signed a new four-year contract with the club, extending his stay at White Hart Lane until 2020.
The 24-year old Danish international is excited to stay at the club. Reports say that Eriksen will see a significant pay raise, upping his base salary from £35,000 to £70,000 per week. Eriksen has made just over 100 Premier League appearances for the Spurs since joining from Dutch side Ajax back in 2013.
“It’s gone really quickly,” Eriksen told the club’s official website. “It’s my fourth season now and yet it doesn’t feel like that, it feels more like a second season and it’s more and more exciting.
“There is a great future at this place and I wouldn’t have signed if I didn’t see that. It’s a very good group of people, players who connect with each other, staff who connect with the players and we all have an idea of where we want to go, and hopefully we’ll achieve it.”
After falling down to third place in the table on the final matchday of last season, Eriksen sees the club taking another step forward this campaign.
“I see the Club taking steps forward,” Eriksen said. “I want to be part of that and luckily, the Club wants me to be part of it as well. I see a great future because as I said, we’re taking it step by step and it’s only going one way at the moment. I’m very happy to be here.”
