England and Spurs midfielder Eric Dier has signed a deal with the North London club that will keep him at White Hart Lane till 2021.
This announcement follows the news of Christian Eriksen committing himself to the club.
The 22-year-old joined Spurs from Sporting Lisbon at the start of the 2014-15 season in a £4 million deal and made an instant impact, scoring the winning goal on his debut in a 1-0 victory against West Ham on the opening day.
Having played in defence during his first year at the club, he switched to a holding midfield role for the 2015-16 campaign and became an integral member of the team. To date, he has made 87 appearances, scoring six goals.
His performance for Spurs earned him plaudits and since making his full England debut in November, 2015, he has won 11 caps for his country and scored two goals.
After signing the deal, Dier was quoted saying,”There are many reasons I wanted to commit my future to Tottenham. We have a fantastic squad full of young, exciting players. We’ve got the new stadium on its way, the fantastic facilities at the training ground, and a fantastic manager who’s great for all us young players. He really looks after us, and makes sure we keep improving. Wembley being filled with 80,000 or more Tottenham fans is going to be an amazing experience. Playing in the Champions League there is very unique, so those two things are going to be fantastic.”
More good news for the Tottenham fans is the fact that striker Harry Kane and defender Kyle Walker are both expected to also sign new deals and extend their stay at White Hart Lane.
Spurs have a young squad full of potential and they are keeping their team intact by holding onto their key players. With the team unlikely to change and with the wealth of talent they have in the form of players who have lots of playing years ahead of them, in the years to come, they will surely be a top notch team not only in England, but in Europe.
As for Dier, he has European football to look forward to as he will be making his Champions League debut with Tottenham at Wembley on Wednesday against French heavyweights Monaco.
