Current and former Tottenham players have began to react to the news of Christian Eriksen's move to Italian side Inter Milan.

Christian Eriksen's transfer away from Tottenham has been on the cards for quite a while. Numerous clubs will have inquired about the Dane's availability with the midfielder's contract coming to an end in the summer. 

It is Italian giants Inter Milan who have managed to secure the playmaker's signature.

Meanwhile the North Londoners have made moves themselves, with on-loan Giovani Lo Celso being made a permanent transfer from Spanish outfit Real Betis.

Eriksen, who made 305 appearances in total for Spurs and netted 69-times, joined the club from Ajax in August 2013. 

A stalwart under Mauricio Pochettino, the midfielder was central to Spurs' run to the Champions League final last season and leaves the club will a whole host of fond memories. 

Several current and former players have expressed their sadness and memories following his departure.
