Eric Dier is close to signing a new contract with Tottenham, according to the Football Insider.
The 26-year-old, who joined Spurs for £2million from Sporting Lisbon in 2014, has just 12 months left on his current deal and looked set make a move away from the club this summer after a inconsistent campaign which has seen him make just 10 Premier League starts.
The majority of those came when Jose Mourinho first came to the club, but Dier failed to nail down a starting place in midfield and was notably taken off by the Tottenham boss just 29 minutes into the Champions League victory over Olympiacos back in November.
Dier went almost two months without a league start between December and February, but since coming back into the side against Aston Villa, the England midfielder has started all five matches in all competitions and has looked far more impressive playing at centre-back, a position he is likely to continue playing when the Premier League restarts.
And Dier’s impressive form has clearly changed the mind of Mourinho and the Spurs hierarchy, who according to Football Insider, have opened talks over fresh terms and are eager to sort his contract situation and avoid another Christian Eriksen situation.
