Things moved swiftly at White Hart Lane yesterday after stories emerged in the morning linking Spurs with a bid for Sporting Lisbon central defender Eric Dier. Later in the day, the club’s official website reported that agreement had been reached by both clubs and that the player would be signing subject to a medical.

A brief statement reads,

‘We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Sporting Lisbon for the transfer of Eric Dier, subject to the player passing a medical.’

Dier’s family moved to Portugal when he was aged 10 and the player progressed through the ranks at Sporting before making his full debut for the senior side in 2012. Over the years, the centre back has played at four representative levels for England and currently has five under 21 caps.

So it’s not quite settled but it seems unlikely that the club would make this announcement if there was any chance of the player doing a ‘Loic Remy’. We therefore welcome Eric Dier and wish him all the best at White Hart Lane but where do you see him slotting in?

    • Strootman is being offered for around €70million…not sure we’re looking to stretch to that kind of fee. Plus, he’ll want to join a big club in the CL, not play in the Europa League before being sold in two/three years time.

  1. We know nothing of this guy, but poch knows what hes doing and clearly bringing in players he wants, not baldinis! thats a good sign. Welcome Dier to Spurs.. Coys

  2. So that’s Verts, Dawson, Kaboul, Vald, Dier and Veljkovic, with Fryers as a backup.

    I’d start Kaboul and Verts personally.

    If Dier pans out then selling Caulker for 9 and getting Dier for 4 would be good business.

  3. What goes around cames around… Dier is going to a club with litle prospects and poor chances in any given competition… lets se how he does…

    Please be so kind to inform dier senior and junior aka: Eric to go fu**

    Thanks

    Nuno

      • Up until two months ago you hadnt won a cup since 2005? thats 9yrs you sad fucker. Unless you count the Arsenal lads daily fuck with your arse and your mums furry cup? coys

    • Rimmer, ive missed you, where have you been? Your fat mums not been returning my calls, im sorry for ripping her arse so much, and sir ledley cumming in her eye wasn’t very romantic! Get her to call me yeah! I love her like arsene Wenger loves sex with children! COYS

  4. Young, English, Played 30 1st team games already,£4million! Can we loose? Even if hes a massive flop we only loose a relatively small amount of money compared to other EPL flops, Think hes a great gamble. Would like us to sign 1 player to really excite the fans now tho, a LB, 2nd choice Goalkeeper and a 4/5 choice CB doesn’t really excite me! Mind you getting Poch really excited me, COYS, keep the faith.
