Christian Eriksen reveals Borussia Dortmund approach

Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen reveals that Borussia Dortmund approached him prior to his move to White Hart Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen has revealed that Borussia Dortmund approached him prior to his move to White Hart Lane.

Eriksen joined Spurs from Ajax for a reported transfer fee of £11.5m last month.

However, the 21-year-old Danish international says that he had earlier held talks with the Champions League finalists.

"Dortmund was interested and they approached me," Eriksen told Danish newspaper BT. "I guess that they contacted all the candidates they had - and I was one of the many.

"They were there and there was a phone call from them. But it's a long time ago and a lot has happened since."

Eriksen, who has been capped 38 times at senior international level, put pen to paper on a five-year contract when he arrived at Tottenham.
