Spurs transfer news: Pochettino cannot confirm if Eriksen has played last game for club

Christian Eriksen was on the bench, once again, for Tottenham’s clash against Newcastle United.

The Dane had to be brought on as we were chasing the game after Joelinton scored in the first half.

Tottenham had nearly 80% of the possession but could not make it count. The Magpies handed us our first defeat of the season, and this was a game we should have won.

Spurs didn’t carve open Newcastle enough, even with Eriksen on the pitch, and the Dane was on the bench in the first game of the season too.

Eriksen came on to save our skin against Aston Villa but he couldn’t perform the same tricks this time around.

The Dane has been linked with a move away from Spurs all summer (h/t Sun) and Mauricio Pochettino was asked after the game if this was the last appearance for Eriksen.

The Argentine couldn’t give an affirmative answer and claimed this situation was difficult for all parties (h/t Football.london):

“I don’t know. I don’t know. Why you ask me? Maybe you know something. It’s so difficult, the situation. We cannot blame one party or another. That is the situation, the circumstances.

“We arrive today with different players and different situations in the squad but I don’t want to justify our performance because of that. I want to make clear the point. When you play football and are on the pitch you don’t think about these situations.”

Not a lot of time for Spurs to deal with Eriksen

The Dane is a free agent at the end of the season and letting him leave for nothing would be a huge mistake by the management.

Spurs have until 2nd September to sell the Dane as the European transfer window is still open, and this uncertainty must be playing on the minds of all parties.
