Tottenham Hotspur round-up: Eriksen injury ‘fears’, Whiteman signs new deal and Moura call-up

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Tottenham Hotspur.

Eriksen ‘fears’

Danish national boss Age Hareide has given Tottenham fans reason to be fearful over the fitness of star creator Christian Eriksen.

The playmaker has an abdominal complaint and the Danish boss admits the problem could become ‘chronic’. As reported by the BBC, he also confirmed that Tottenham ‘fear’ that may prove to be the case.

The Danish boss has admitted it is unlikely Eriksen will play for his country during the international break, casting doubt over his current recovery time.

Whiteman deal

Young goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman has signed a new deal at Tottenham. The 20-year-old has recently been training with the first-team after injuries to both Michel Vorm and Hugo Lloris.

His current deal was due to expire next summer but he has now signed an extension. He is now contracted to the London club until the summer of 2020 and will hope to push into the Tottenham first-team in the years to come.

Moura recall

Lucas Moura has been called into the Brazil squad. The Tottenham star has enjoyed a good start to the current season but missed out on selection for upcoming clashes with Saudi Arabia and Argentina.

Selecao were training at Tottenham’s training ground, leaving Moura in something of an awkward position this week.

However, as reported by Globo Esporte, Gremio attacker Everton has pulled out injured and Moura has received a recall.
