Eriksen stay is 'vital' for Spurs - Rose

25th April 2019, 09:47 by Bobbie Jackson

Tottenham defender Danny Rose says it is "vital" the club fight to keep hold of midfielder Christian Eriksen.

The Denmark international is set to be out of contract with the north London outfit at the end of next season and he is yet to engage in renewal talks.

As things stand, Eriksen would be a free agent in the summer of 2020 and the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid are still understood to be keen.

Rose is desperate to see the playmaker commit to a long-term deal and is hopeful the board will tie him down in the near future.

"It's obviously vital [that Eriksen stays]. If you look over the five years that the manager's been here, Christian has played the most games and that says a lot," Rose said.

"When Christian doesn't play, there are questions that we don't look the same. He links everything up for us.

"The lads in the changing room trust the people upstairs to hopefully get him to sign.

"We have every possible foundation at the club - the training ground, the stadium now, the fan-base, the players. But it's not just the foundations that attract players and make players want to stay.

"It's out of the players' control. We just have to trust that the people upstairs are going to do whatever they see fit to help us make that next step."
