Dier sets for new Spurs deal
Tottenham Hotspur are preparing a new contract for Eric Dier, according to The Telegraph.
After a problematic 2018/19, during which he suffered from appendicitis and tonsillitis, as well as a hip injury which eventually required surgery, the 25-year-old had lost his place in the team under
Mauricio Pochettino. However, following the Argentinian’s departure and the appointment of Jose Mourinho is his place, he has become a prominent member again, and as a consequence, he is the next in line for a fresh deal following defender Toby Alderweireld signing his recently. The increase in wages for Dier is expected to be a significant one, over £75,000 per week more than he earns under his current contract, which expires in 2021.
Primarily a defensive midfielder, the England international is also capable of slotting into the back line, and that versatility makes him a valuable asset, especially given that Mourinho wants another defender.
