Inter Milan sign Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen has joined Inter Milan in a £16.8m move from Tottenham, signing a four-and-a-half year deal with the Serie A club.

Eriksen has been heavily linked with a move away from Tottenham for almost a year now and with the 27-year-old entering the final six months of his contract and refusing to sign an extension, Spurs have opted to take the money.

As part of the deal, Inter will also pay a £843k (€1m) sell-on clause to Eriksen's former club Ajax and Spurs will pocket the proceeds of a friendly game with the Milan club in the future.

Eriksen joins a Nerazzurri side who currently sit second in Serie A, three points behind leaders Juventus.

The Dane is their third signing of the January window, with Antonio Conte’s side having already added Ashley Young and Victor Moses to their squad this winter.

He leaves Spurs after a six-and-a-half year spell in north London, making 305 appearances, scoring 69 goals and providing 89 assists.
