Eric Dier signs new four-year deal with Tottenham
The 26-year-old England international was in the final year of his deal with the club. Negotiations over a new contract had been ongoing for some time now. And finally, the two parties have come to an agreement, with the versatile defender penning a new four-year contract. (h/t TottenhamHotspur.com)
“I feel like that 20-year-old when I first arrived. That’s the feeling I have right now. I feel like I’m at the beginning of a new journey. I’m really happy to continue here and happy to commit to this new journey we’re on now with our new manager.”
After having endured a difficult year or so due to injuries and drop in form, Dier has found a new lease on life since Jose Mourinho took over the reins at the club.
Under the Portuguese, Dier has worked his way back into a regular starter for us, while moving into the centre-back role of late has worked wonders for his form and confidence. Till date Dier has racked up 239 appearances for Tottenham, and has scored 11 goals.

Here’s how the supporters reacted to the news of the Englishman signing a new contract with the club.
Great news. Feel like he’s started to really come into his own at the back under Jose. A leader as well which we have so badly lacked.

Good news. I think he’s improved a fair bit the second half this season tbh. Definitely starting to find his feet at centre back.
