Eric Dier admits he considered his Tottenham Hotspur future before committing to the cause

According to the Daily Mail (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur star Eric Dier revealed that he considered leaving the club in the summer transfer window before eventually deciding to stay put.

The 26-year-old enjoyed a mixed season last time around that saw him even get into trouble for his off the field antics. He has enjoyed much more success this time around and has made 13 appearances for a Spurs side that looks the real deal.

However, things could have been different had he chosen against signing a new four-year deal in July.

Eric Dier decided against quitting Tottenham Hotspur in the summer

Tottenham Hotspur star Eric Dier revealed that he considered leaving the club in the summer transfer window before eventually deciding to stay put.

The English international was not convinced whether he was achieving what he wanted. With time on his deal running out, he began to question the future he had at Spurs. (h/t Football.london)

“I didn’t feel like I was achieving what I wanted. When your contract starts to come to an end, you question if you’re part of the future.”

Having spent six years at the club, Dier was not keen to see out the last year of his contract at the club. He revealed that the club was aware that the previous summer would see a decision made – for better or for worse. (h/t Football.london)

 “I had no desire to be at a club in the last year of my contract.”

Challenge accepted!

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho played a key role in changing Dier’s mind. He admitted that the Portuguese’s offer to play him in defence played a key role in swinging the pendulum in our favour. (h/t Football.london)

Dier has risen to Mourinho’s challenge

It is fair to say that the 26-year-old has not looked back since then and has grown once again into a valuable member of our squad. Mourinho’s challenge has since seen the player step up and be counted. (h/t Football.london)

“My main focus is always to be in a position competing to play. Feeling there’s a plan in place for me is important, too. They were the major factors in me deciding to stay here and I couldn’t be happier.”

Dier joined Spurs from Sporting Lisbon in 2014. He was a key player under Mauricio Pochettino before falling down the pecking order in recent years. Now back to his best, he could play a key role in any potential success we have this season.
