Tottenham to beat Arsenal to England Under-21 international

4230098Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Football Transfer Tavern look set to finally get one over on Arsenal.

That is because according to the Daily Star, Spurs are set to sign highly-rated defender Eric Dier.

Dier, who is an England Under-21 international, was left frustrated with his lack of first team game time for Sporting Lisbon last term and is believed to be interested in a return to England.

As well as the two North London clubs, Newcastle United have also been linked with a move for the 20-year-old former Everton loanee but according to reports, Mauricio Pochettino’s £4 million offer has been accepted by the Primeira Liga giants.

Dier was born in Cheltenham but moved to Portugal with his parents aged ten when his mother was offered a job in the country.

His parents eventually returned to England but he continued to try and break through the ranks in Portugal – eventually breaking into the first team in 2012.

He has made 30 first team appearances for the Jose Alvalade-based side since but it seems his time in Portugal is set to end.
