Highly-rated Denmark star Christian Eriksen claims he has turned down a big-money switch to Premier League leaders Manchester City. The Ajax midfielder, 19, is being coveted by a number of Europe's leading clubs. Eriksen insists he will stay with the Dutch club until he thinks he can nail down a starting place with one of his suitors.

He said: "My agent told me about interest from Manchester City, but it is nothing I thought about. "There is no point moving to a club where I will sit on the bench. "If I moved to City there would be a big risk."
