Inter Milan have terminated the contract of Christian Eriksen as he is banned from playing in Serie A.

The Denmark international has been fitted with a heart-monitoring device following his cardiac arrest on the pitch at Euro 2020.

But such a device is prohibited in the Italian league, leading to a mutual agreement between the ex-Tottenham star and Inter.

A statement from the club read: "FC Internazionale Milano can confirm that an agreement has been reached to terminate Christian Eriksen's contract by mutual consent.

"The club and the entire Nerazzurri family wish Christian all the very best for his future.

"Although Inter and Christian are now parting ways, the bond shall never be broken.

"The good times, the goals, the victories, those Scudetto celebrations with fans outside San Siro – all this will remain forever in Nerazzurri history."

Eriksen joined Inter from Spurs in 2020 and went on to make 60 appearances for them, registering eight goals and three assists in that time.

The 29-year-old could still carry on with his career, but it will have to be outside of Italy where they have strict health laws.

Eriksen received life-saving treatment on the pitch during Denmark's match with Finland before being taken to a local hospital.

It was there that he was fitted with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator, which corrects irregular heart rhythms.

Ajax and Netherlands defender Daley Blind had a similar heart device fitted and continues to play for club and country.

It's just that rules in Italy forbid people who have a defibrillator from playing contact sports.

Eriksen recently began training once again with the club he started his career at in Denmark.

Odense Boldklub welcomed him back with open arms and Eriksen is said to have a house close to the training ground.
