Christian Eriksen: No deal agreed with Liverpool, according to Ajax

Recent reports have suggested the Premier League club are close to landing the highly-rated playmaker at the end of the season after courting his services for some time.

Eriksen's future at Ajax has been the subject of conjecture for some time with many of the top clubs across Europe linked with the talented Dane.

The 21-year-old has impressed for Ajax again this season, scoring 12 goals this term and he is the current Dutch Footballer of the Year.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to bolster his attacking options and Eriksen is believed to be one of his top targets this summer.

However, Ajax insist no deal has been agreed with Liverpool for the Denmark international's signature.

"We will send out a press release when there is an agreement," Ajax press manager Eefje Schep told Danish TV2.

"Also if there is only a deal between Ajax and the club. So at this time there is no agreement between Ajax and Liverpool."

Ajax are resigned to losing Eriksen this summer with the classy attacker turning down the club's offer of a new deal.

Ajax technical director Marc Overmars has reiterated that Eriksen, who has one year running on his current deal at the Amsterdam ArenA, has rejected the chance to extend his contract.

"Christian has informed us that he won't be signing a new deal with us at this time," Overmars told Voetbal International. "I think that he and his agent will want to see what options are available in the summer.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
