Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino remains hopeful that the club can agree a new contract with Christian Eriksen.
The Denmark international is out of contract at the end of next season and is currently stalling on a new deal, with Real Madrid reported to be interested in signing him but Pochettino says both sides will sit down in the summer.
"It is a situation that is a very special situation, Christian is a special person, I think we are all special, different and we need to understand that.
"The timing for him or for the club to be agreeing something are maybe different to another player.
"I hope and I wish Christian can be with us in the future but I think Christian and us we are so open to talk and we will see what happens.
"I think it is so close to the end of the season, a lot of time to talk after and I think the most important thing now, not only for him, is for all the players to be focused and try to achieve the things we want.
"We have a lot of big things ahead and we need to be focused only to try and recover, train and compete."
Eriksen scored the winner as third-place Spurs beat Brighton and Hove Albion 1-0 at their new stadium last night. It's moved Tottenham three points clear of nearest challengers Chelsea in the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League and Pochettino says they're now in pole-position to qualify.
"We are in a position now that is in our hands to be in the top four, If we are capable of winning the next three games in the Premier League then we will be third.
"I think that is the key, thinking about ourselves and then seeing what's happening next to us of course."
