Mauricio Pochettino has expressed his confidence that Christian Eriksen will sign a new contract at Tottenham Hotspur, saying that agreement is “just a question of time”.
The Denmark midfielder, who is so fundamental to Pochettino’s team, particularly because of his set-piece deliveries, has been in negotiations over fresh terms for some weeks, with only two years to run on his existing deal.
But the manager suggested he would not be surprised if there was a breakthrough in the coming weeks, saying: “Always, the players are involved in different things but they are very professional. We are very happy with him. We will see what happens in the next few weeks. He has two more years and he is happy here. It’s just a question of time to agree a new contract.”
