Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is "happy" at the club, says manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The Denmark international, 27, was reported as seeking a "new challenge" in June but did not get a transfer during the summer window.

He has only played one full Premier League game so far this season, but scored in Spurs' 2-2 draw with Arsenal before the international break.

"He never said he was not happy here - he always was," Pochettino said.

"I said before the Arsenal game that he was in the right mind - that's why I selected him for that game and I will continue to select him.

"He has always been such an important player for us and he will continue to be."

Spurs host Crystal Palace on Saturday, kick-off 15:00 BST.
