Eric Dier has signed a new long-term contract at Tottenham, the club have confirmed on Twitter on Tuesday morning.

The 26-year-old, who joined from Sporting Lisbon in the summer of 2014, has committed his future to Spurs after weeks of negotiations, agreeing a four-year deal.

Since making the switch from the Portuguese outfit six seasons ago, Dier has make 239 appearances in all competitions, scoring 11 goals – including a memorable stoppage-time winner on his debut against West Ham.

Dier has been plagued with injuries and illness in recent seasons, but has been revitalised since Jose Mourinho moved him back into the defence before lockdown and prior to his four-match ban for jumping into the crowd after the FA Cup defeat to Norwich City back in March, he’d started six Premier League games on the bounce.

Dier could make his return to action for Sunday’s season finale against Crystal Palace, although Mourinho is likely to named an unchanged starting XI for the fourth consecutive game.
