Tottenham have tonight completed the signing of Ajax midfielder, Christian Eriksen.
The fee agreed by the two clubs was £11.5million, taking Tottenham’s summer spending spree past the £100million mark.
Erikson is Spurs’ third signing of the day, joining Vlad Chiriches, 23, and Erik Lamela, 21, at White Hart Lane – as previously reported.
The highly-rated Dutchman made 161 appearances for Ajax since joining them in 2008, scoring 32 goals in the process. Along with this, Christian has been capped 37 times by his home-country of Holland.
This excessive spending spree is in preperation for the iminant departure of the club’s star player, Gareth Bale.
