Ambitious Dier signs new Tottenham deal

England international midfielder Eric Dier has signed a new four-year contract with Tottenham which will keep him at the club until 2024.

Dier has been a fixture in the Tottenham squad since joining from Sporting Lisbon in 2014, making 239 appearances and scoring eleven goals. 

The 26-year-old has expressed a desire to win trophies and his commitment to the north London outfit is a major boost for boss Jose Mourinho as he looks to restore the club’s fortunes following a poor season.

Tottenham finished second in the Premier League in 2016-17 and reached the Champions League final last season. However, following a difficult campaign which has seen the departure of former manager Mauricio Pochettino and a string of injuries to key players, they are struggling to secure European football for next season.

“I am really happy to continue here and commit to this new journey we’re on,” Dier told Spurs TV.

“It’s crazy to think that I have been here for six years now. I have enjoyed it a lot. It’s a fantastic place to be.

“The club gave me my opportunity in England and it has given me so much since then.

“We’ve had some great times together but I want to have even better times and I still feel there are a lot of things I need to achieve here before it’s over.

“My targets are very clear, I want to be one of the best in my position in the Premier League and that was one of the reasons why I wanted to stay here and commit to my future here.

“My clear objective – and I think the manager’s clear objective – is to try and win trophies for this club.

“I feel with the manager and his record and his mentality towards winning trophies, that was a huge thing for me. When the day does come to leave this club, I want to leave knowing I have done that.”
