Spurs ‘increasingly confident’ Eriksen will stay

Tottenham are claimed to be ‘increasingly confident’ that Christian Eriksen will finally sign a new long-term deal at the club.

The Danish international has been locked in contract negotiations with the club for a number of months, with talks having stalled over an extension.

Spanish giants Real Madrid have reportedly been monitoring Eriksen’s situation ahead of a potential summer swoop, though Spurs have become increasingly confident the 27-year-old will extend his stay at the Champions League semi-finalists.

According to Goal, the stalled negotiations have progressed in recent weeks, with Eriksen now reportedly close to signing new terms at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with the club willing to double the midfielder’s current £75,000-a-week deal.

Tottenham qualified for the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in their history on Wednesday night, beating Manchester City in the last eight, though their place in next season’s competition is yet to be secured.

Mauricio Pochettino’ side are currently embroiled in a four-way fight for the final two qualification places, and Eriksen may be waiting until the club’s position in Europe’s top competition is confirmed before finally committing his future to the club.
