Christian Eriksen has given the strongest indication yet he will sign a new long-term contract with Tottenham Hotspur. The Denmark international has two-and-a-half years left remaining on the deal he signed upon his arrival at the club in 2013, but is one of three players set to be rewarded with a new contract.
According to the Daily Mail, Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Harry Kane are to be rewarded with new deals. Speaking after his dramatic late winner to secure a 2-1 victory over Manchester City, the former Ajax midfielder assured all talks are going well.
"We are still talking about the contract. It is all positive. I think everyone can see that I can fulfil my ambitions here," Eriksen said, Sky Sports reported.
Eriksen's goal on 14 February strengthened Tottenham's Premier League title credentials with the win moving the club up to second, two points behind leaders Leicester City, with 12 games of the season remaining.
Like the rest of the Tottenham dressing room, the Dane insists Spurs remain grounded over their title prospects.
"We are still not there, we are still far from winning the league. There are a lot of games to go. We need to be really sharp and continue what we're doing. We have a lot of good players, even on the bench. The players we brought on are top, top quality and the ones who are not playing are still doing a really good job.
"We always believe in scoring goals. We are relaxed. We know when we need to go forward and when we need to stay calm."
Midfielders Mousa Dembele, Josh Onomah and Dele Alli have all penned new contracts at White Hart Lane so far this season.
