Eriksen to stay at Spurs

Midfielder Christian Eriksen insists his future is at Tottenham, even if they fail to qualify for the Champions League for a third successive season.

Spurs are outsiders for a place in the top-four despite beating Sunderland to move within five points of fourth-placed Arsenal on Monday Night Football.

Eriksen was the star of the show at White Hart Lane, grabbing a goal and two assists in a 5-1 demolition that kept Gus Poyet's side firmly rooted to the bottom of the Premier League.

The Dane is coming to the end of an impressive first season after joining from Ajax last summer and said: "I'm happy here and I am looking forward to the future.

"For me, the feeling I have at the club isn't dependent on being in the Champions League."

He told the Daily Mirror: "Our aim now is to win all our matches so that we end the season with some confidence ahead of next year and if we do that, we can see where it takes us in the table."

Eriksen's comments will be welcome news to Tottenham fans, who face an anxious wait to see if manager Tim Sherwood will be leaving the club this summer.

Spurs supporters will also be hoping the club keep hold of key duo Jan Vertonghen and Hugo Lloris, who have both been linked with moves away if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Last week, chairman Daniel Levy released a statement in which he said the club will not overhaul the squad, which saw the introduction of seven new players last season at a cost of over £100m, and instead focus on improving key areas.

Sherwood, meanwhile, believes Eriksen will only get better whoever the Spurs manager is.

"You have to drag him off the training field every day and he is still a kid," he said. "He will get better. But he will only get better because he wants to. I'm delighted for him."
