Tottenham Hotspur’s burgeoning Premier League project under Mauricio Pochettino has received another piece of positive news with Eric Dier committing to the North London club until 2021 with a new contract.
The England international has been transformed into a central midfielder since the Argentine coach’s arrival at White Hart Lane and is now an important player for Spurs.
A dominant force in the Tottenham boiler room last season and an essential reason that the London club finished third in the Premier League, Dier has also become a regular at international level.
Despite the summer addition of Victor Wanyama, the former Sporting Lisbon star looks set to continue his talismanic role in the Spurs midfield and be first-choice enforcer in Pochettino’s preferences.
Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react to Dier’s new deal, which follows in the footsteps of Christian Eriksen’s commitment to the club.
The news was an opportunity for Tottenham’s faithful to praise the 22-year-old and laud the ongoing commitment of the player group to the Premier League club.
Here are some of the best tweets.
