Christian Eriksen made his return to Premier League action on Saturday, coming off the bench and making a difference as Tottenham Hotspur ran out 3-1 winners over Aston Villa. All three of Spurs’ goals went in after his introduction, although the Dane didn’t have a direct hand in any of them.

It’s now being reported that despite the speculation, Eriksen could be set to sign a new contract in North London, as The Daily Mail claim that the Lilywhites are going to offer the playmaker a contract worth £200,000 per/week, which is over double what he currently earns at the club.
The Dane is reportedly on £80,000 per/week according to the Mail, and whilst the massive pay rise he would receive looks like a great incentive to put pen to paper, it’s claimed that there are concerns that it still won’t be enough to convince him to stay on at the club.

Spurs need to keep him.
Watching winks and sissoko play against villa was like watching paint dry.

The Lilywhites are desperate for Eriksen to sign a new deal, and after Saturday it looks like he’s desperately needed.
