Tottenham Hotspur have signed Danish creative midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Eriksen becomes Tottenham’s third signing in the past 24 hours after signing Vlad Chiriches and Erik Lamela earlier in the day. Eriksen, Lamela and Chiriches also join the other new Tottenham signings this summer: Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli, Etienne Capoue and Paulinho, bringing Tottenham’s signings this summer to a whopping seven players.

The Danish international Eriksen joins Tottenham from Ajax. He played 161 games for Ajax, scoring 33 times.

The attacking midfielder, capped 37 times by Denmark, helped Ajax win three consecutive Eredivisie championships between 2011 and 2013.

The signing of Eriksen could be Tottenham’s last signing before they announce that Real Madrid have signed Gareth Bale. An announcement is expected later today.
