OFFICIAL: Eric Dier Extend Tottenham Hotspur Contract Untill 2024

Tottenham Hotspur have officially extended Eric Dier’s contract until June 2024.

Jose Mourinho has been keen on retaining the England international’s services on a long-term basis, featuring him heavily in his defence since the restart.

Dier’s run got disrupted with a four-match ban that he received for confronting a fan after a game in March. The 26-year-old played more regularly as a defensive midfielder under previous boss, Mauricio Pochettino. Mourinho prefers to play him in his more suited position at the back either in a back-three or a back-four.

“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.”

Tottenham have a very strong chance of gaining European football for next season after beating Leicester City 3-0 last weekend. They are only one win away from securing a top-six spot after what has been a horrid season for them. But the final game will be against Crystal Palace, while Wolves are a point ahead and are due to face Chelsea next.
