London - Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has signed a four-year contract extension, the Premier League club announced on Tuesday.

Eriksen had been in negotiations with Tottenham since early last season and those talks have finally yielded an extended deal worth a reported £75,000 per week.

The 24-year-old had been linked with Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus while the discussions dragged on.

But Denmark international Eriksen, signed from Dutch club Ajax in August 2013, admitted he was relieved to have committed his future to the north London team.

"There is a great future at this place and I wouldn't have signed if I didn't see that," he told Spurs TV.

Eriksen has made more than 130 appearances for Tottenham and he is confident Mauricio Pochettino's squad will challenge for the Premier League title after narrowly missing out to Leicester City last term.

"Since I came in the last two years we have been going forwards, are taking steps upwards and I want to be a part of it," Eriksen added.

"I see a great future, it is going only one way at the moment.

"I think it is a very good group of people and players who can connect with each other and a group of staff who connect with the players.

"We have an idea of where we want to end and hopefully we will achieve that."
