The Spurs manager is not entertaining the exit talks around one his key squad members.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has opted to remain tight-lipped on the transfer saga involving Christian Eriksen. The wantaway Danish midfielder who has barely six months left on his current contract drew praises from the Portuguese manager after playing a key role in his side's 2-2 draw at Carrow Road on Saturday.

With Spurs taking a goal deficit into half-time, the 28-year-old midfielder stepped up to equalize in the 55th-minute with a free-kick goal. Resultantly, he extended his record of being the player with the most goals from outside the box (23) and most direct free-kick goals (8) since debuting in the Premier League back in September 2013.

It is no secret that a host of top European clubs including the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United are said to be interested in the Danes' signing and the player could be well available to move in the upcoming winter transfer window. Still, his current manager Jose Mourinho has refused to be drawn into such talks despite acknowledging the fact that the former Ajax midfielder could exit his side.

"I don't want to speak about it [his situation]," he told Sky Sports after the match.

"I speak with him and we are so open with each other because we trust each other in the sense that we keep to ourselves.

"Obviously, I share with my boss [Daniel Levy] and Christian knows that, but the only thing I can say is that he's trying to help the team. Christian was very good."

Meanwhile, the Portuguese manager was particularly unhappy with his side's performance and opined that recurrent defensive errors proved to be costly in the day's draw.

"I think the same defensive mistakes we made in the first half, we made in the second half. This is being a little bit of our history.

"We conceded two very bad goals. Our defensive mistakes are match after match. I have lots of work to do but it has been difficult because I always say you have to try and hide your frailties.

"We have to improve defensively because there are too many individual mistakes. That's very frustrating because we play well and cannot be more offensive than we were in the second half. Norwich defended with their souls and their lives."
