Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Eric Dier has signed a new five-year deal which will keep him at the club until 2021.

The 22-year-old started his Spurs career as a defender after joining the north London outfit from Sporting Lisbon in the summer of 2014.

However, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino deployed him as a holding midfielder last season, with the 22-year-old performing brilliantly in the new role.

Dier’s impressive displays prompted then England boss Roy Hodgson to hand the youngster his senior international debut in a 2-0 friendly loss to Spain last November.

The starlet was also part of England’s European Championship squad in the summer in France, where he scored the nation’s first goal of the tournament in the 1-1 draw with Russia.


Dier, who also spent time at Everton’s academy, has thus far made 87 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham, scoring six times.

He also has 12 caps and two goals for England to his name.
