Dier signs new Spurs deal

Tottenham Hotspur’s versatile England international Eric Dier has signed a new deal that will keep him at the north London side until 2024, the English Premier League club said yesterday. The 26-year-old, who joined from Portugal’s Sporting Lisbon in 2014 and primarily played as a holding midfielder, has become a key player in Spurs’ defense under manager Jose Mourinho who took charge after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked in November. Dier, who was due to be out of contract next summer, has made 239 appearances for the club, scoring 11 times. Spurs are seventh in the league with 58 points from 37 games and finish their campaign with a trip to Crystal Palace on Sunday, hoping to secure a place in European competition. Dier will make his return to the squad having been banned for four games by the Football Association over a confrontation with a home fan, after Spurs’ defeat on penalties by Norwich City in the FA Cup fifth round in March.
