The Tottenham faithful in the Football Transfer Tavern have been waiting for this news for weeks!
There is not much that the array of footballing fans in the Football Transfer Tavern can agree on, but one thing is for certain; they all think that Eric Dier was one hell of a purchase by Mauricio Pochettino.
The English midfielder was plucked from the continent with very little fanfare, but in the two years following his arrival in the English capital – he has transformed from an option in the middle-of-the-park to a vital midfield stalwart.
One particularly vocal Tottenham fan in the Tavern has proclaimed all summer long that he the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League; and on recent form – it is difficult to argue.
His impressive form has thrown up a few concerns amongst the Tottenham faithful in the Tavern however, with some fearing that his long-term future may lie away from White Hart Lane.
As smug as ever, the Arsenal fans in the Tavern have done very little to allay the fears of the Spurs fans in attendance, claiming on a number of occasions that his departure is inevitable – claiming that Tottenham are a ‘selling club’
However, worry no longer Tottenham fans! In news that will no doubt delight fans of Spurs, Tottenham have confirmed that Dier has committed his long-term future to the club, signing a 5-year deal that will see him through to 2021 with the London giants.
The confirmation drew a giant cheer from the Tottenham faithful, whom are delighted to see their star midfielder remain at the club for the foreseeable future.
The news is particularly pleasing to the Tottenham fans in attendance this evening, as the deal follows the recently confirmed news that midfielder maestro Christian Eriksen had also signed a new long-term deal with the club.
Dier has been in outstanding form for Tottenham so far this season, proving an impenetrable force in the heart of the Tottenham midfield.
Our landlord thinks Pochettino’s next priority should be to sign both Dele Alli and Harry Kane to long-term deals; as their recent form will no doubt attract foreign interest going forward.
Tottenham’s English core are now well on the way to cementing their future with the London club.
