Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen has sent out a message to teammate Christian Eriksen, amid talks about him possibly securing a transfer move away from the club this summer.
This is definitely not the first time there has been a feeling of doubt and concern surrounding the future of the Denmark star.
Last summer, Eriksen, along with other key Tottenham stars, were tipped for a departure before the playmaker decided to remain in north London for another year.
However, the situation is much different this summer, with the player himself admitting that he might leave to try out ‘something new’ (BBC Sport).
With Eriksen being a very important member of the Spurs squad, his commitment to the club does mean a lot to his teammates as well as the fans.
And therefore, Vertonghen has sent out a message to Eriksen, backing him to decide against a transfer away from the club.
“Obviously when the transfer window starts there are a lot of rumours, but there were rumours last year and everyone stayed together, so I’m hopeful,” Vertonghen said, as per Goal
“Christian is a great player. I have known him since he was 16, played with him since he was 16 or 17 [at Ajax] and I hope he’s with Tottenham next season. He’s an exceptional player.”
