Breakdown in relations between Levy and Eriksen’s agent – Guardian

Relations between Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and Christian Eriksen’s agent have broken down amid speculation over the midfielder’s future, The Guardian reports.

Eriksen, who is in the final year of his Spurs contract, continues to be linked with a possible move ahead of the European transfer deadline on 2 September.

And The Guardian say Spurs are in the dark about Eriksen’s intentions because Levy has not spoken to Martin Schoots, who represents the player, for some time.

Eriksen was left out of the starting line-up for Sunday’s home defeat against Newcastle and manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted after the game that he did not know whether the Dane has played his last match for Spurs.

Meanwhile, former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes Pochettino was wrong to leave Eriksen out.

“He leaves him out again against Newcastle at the weekend, it’s a strange one,” Redknapp told Talksport.

“Without Dele Alli, Eriksen is the only player Spurs have got who can make that final pass. Why was he on the bench?

“I know he wants to go, but while he’s there I’d still be looking to play him to win games.

“If there is a problem with him, why bring him on, just because you’re in trouble?

“He doesn’t look like a lad who is going to cause a problem does he? He’s come on and tried. He looks a good sort of boy to me.

“He’s not a troublemaker, he’s a fantastic football and seems like a great lad.”
