Eriksen keeping options open

Christian Eriksen has turned down the offer of a new deal at Ajax and claims he would consider a switch to England.

The Denmark international has long been billed as a Premier League star of the future, with his talents having been spotted early by top sides across Europe.

Eriksen has shrugged off endless rounds of speculation regarding his future to remain loyal to Ajax, but is now ready to swing open the transfer door.

He remains under contract in Holland until 2014, but Ajax will look to cash in on his services rather than risk losing him for nothing.

A move to Spain was reported to be Eriksen's preference, but the highly-rated 20-year-old insists he is keeping all options open.

"I will make a decision concerning my future later," said Eriksen.

"It is not true that I am only considering a move to Spain. I will review all options from Italy, England and Spain.

"But before I leave Ajax, I want to continue to win and that is my focus."
