Spurs’ creative midfield ace rejects new contract – report
By Alex Taylor
Christian Eriksen has rejected Tottenham’s latest offer of a new contract, according to a report.
The Evening Standard claim that the creative midfielder is looking for a deal that would put him in-line with the highest earners at White Hart Lane.
The report says that while no agreement has been reached over a new deal, the Dane remains keen to agree fresh terms to stay in north London.
It is believed that Eriksen, currently earning £30,000 per-week, could be looking to at least double his salary after a string of fine performances for Spurs over the last three seasons.
Mauricio Pochettino’s talisman still has two years remaining on his current contract and it is unlikely that any wage disagreements would result in the player leaving the club until next summer at the earliest.

Eriksen has developed into a key player for Spurs, scoring six goals and supplying 13 assists in his 35 Premier League appearances last season.
The Tottenham manager has made few additions in the summer transfer window, and it is believed that he is looking to maintain the core of his squad from last season as he prepares for his third season with the club.
The young English core of Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane, supported by Eriksen, played a huge role in their success, with Kane winning the golden boot award for his 25 league goals.
