Tottenham are in talks with highly-rated attacker Eriksen about a move to White Hart Lane after Ajax granted them permission to speak to the 21-year-old.

Eriksen has been linked with a host of Europe's top clubs after impressing for Ajax and Denmark over the last couple of years.

De Boer is disappointed at the prospect of losing his star player and believes he will be a major success in the Premier League if he does end up joining Tottenham.

"His departure will be an enormous loss, Chris was very important for us," De Boer told De Telegraaf

"We always have work in a good way. Players who are that good and also the ideal professional are, for a coach, the most ideal players."

Asked if he thought Eriksen would succeed in England, De Boer said: "It would surprise me if that won't happen."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
