Tottenham Hotspur might be fearing the worst over Hugo Lloris amid links to Manchester United, but they need not worry about another one of their star players leaving for Old Trafford this summer.
Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen has insisted that he feels “right at home” at White Hart Lane and has ruled out a departure.
The 24-year-old has been linked with both United and Paris Saint-Germain after an impressive 10-goal season in the Premier League, but he is focused on getting Spurs back into the top four next season.

“I feel right at home at Tottenham,” he told Danish newspaper Ritzau, according to the London Evening Standard.
“I haven’t thought about leaving yet. I still have three years on my current deal so I’m not in a big rush to leave the club.”
When asked about the club’s targets for next term, he added: “Our target is the same as last season. We need to get past that fifth place and break the top four. We might have finished fifth this year but we weren’t close to the top four with the games we lost.
“We’ve a very promising squad with a lot of young players who have done well this season and they will only improve next season. So it will be exciting.”
Eriksen joined Tottenham from Ajax for £11.5m in 2013, and is one of the few success stories of their £110m spending spree in the aftermath of the Gareth Bale sale.
