Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood urges unsettled attacker Christian Eriksen to stay with the club.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has urged unsettled attacker Christian Eriksen to stay with Mauricio Pochettino's side.

The Denmark international was strongly linked with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid during the summer after admitting that he wanted a new challenge.

Eriksen ultimately remained with Spurs beyond the end of the transfer deadline, but the playmaker's contract will expire at the end of the season and he is currently being linked with a January exit.

Sherwood, however, has claimed that the 27-year-old will struggle to find a club with a better chance of winning trophies than his current side.

"He's ran his contract down for a reason, it wouldn't be a money-motivated reason," Sherwood told Sky Sports News.

"Christian Eriksen wants to leave the football club because he wants to go to a club where he thinks he can win trophies. I believe that's a difficult task, to find a club better than Tottenham to win trophies."

Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid and Manchester United are all said to be considering moves for the former Ajax youngster in the January transfer window.
