Christian Eriksen has publicly admitted his wish to quit Tottenham this summer and has no regrets about forcing the issue.

In comments published by the Mirror, the Spurs man admits his desire to leave the North London club and believes he was right to do so.

The Danish international and one time Tottenham golden boy, went public at the end of last season, that he wanted a new challenge.

It was only the summer before that suitors were lining up to acquire his services, only to be priced out of amove by Spurs chairman Daniel levy.

Levy was demanding 130 million Euros for Eriksen.

Roll forward 12 months, and Eriksen goes public of his desire to leave and is led to believe that Real Madrid his destination of choice is wanting him at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The summer transfer window opens and no bids are fourth coming, the window progresses and still no bid for Eriksen.

With hours to go before the English window closes, Manchester United enquire, but Eriksen rejects the idea and he is holding out for a move outside of the Premier League.

With the European transfer deadline looming, daniel Levy is starting to get a little concerned and offers the player to numerous clubs. Nobody is bidding for the Danish international.

With all transfer windows now closed, Eriksen is stuck in North London, and Daniel Levy and Tottenham are stuck with a player that doesn’t want to be there.

Worse still he only has 12 months left on his contract and has already said he will not sign an extension.

Eriksen said:

“No it wasn’t wrong (to push) but it is football and you never know what happens and many things always come into play.”

“I have been involved for many years, where there have been many rumours every year.”

“But it’s clear that it’s been a little more violent this year because my contract is about to expire.”

“I know a lot of people are interested in where to play. That’s the way it is.”

“This is how it is in a top club if you have done well. There will always be rumours.”

The January winter transfer window will be a scramble for Levy to try and cash in on his wantaway star.

Eriksen may have his pick of clubs come the new year as he will undoubtedly be available at a bargain price.
