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."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
