Whilst also discussing the Champions League draw pitting Ajax against Barcelona, AC Milan and Celtic, De Boer confirmed reports that Eriksen has already undergone a medical at White Hart Lane on Thursday afternoon.
De Boer said: “The transfer of Eriksen to Tottenham Hotspur is as good as final.”
Personal discussions have also taken place this Thursday afternoon between Eriksen’s advisers and Spurs director of football Franco Baldini to tie up the deal.
