Eric Dier signs new five-year Tottenham deal - Twitter reacts

Spurs have announced that holding midfielder and England international Eric Dier has signed a new five year contract, keeping him at the club until 2021, reportedly worth around £70,000 a week, making him one of the club’s top earners one year after signing for the London team from Sporting Lisbon.

Dier shone last season and became one of the club’s most important figures as they launched a fight for the title, missing just two games all season, with 48 of his 51 appearances in the starting eleven. The 22-year-old then went on to play a key role for England at Euro 2016, scoring a memorable free-kick against Russia in the opening game as he returned from France as one of the few men with any credit to his name.

Having started every game so far this season, Mauricio Pochettino clearly values his midfielder highly, playing alongside Victor Wanyama in a feisty midfield which has seen Spurs remain unbeaten with victories over Crystal Palace and Stoke, with draws against Everton and Liverpool. Now, Dier will gear up for his first taste of Champions League football as Wembley plays host to AS Monaco on Wednesday night.

If Spurs are to maintain their form from the early stages of last season, Dier will be key to that, and he is rapidly becoming the team’s most valuable player with consistent and reliable performances, whilst the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli struggle to find form after a disappointing international campaign and summer break.
