The Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t had the busiest summer of activity to sink their teeth into just yet, though remain hopeful that Daniel Levy will back Mauricio Pochettino in getting the players he wants.
Indeed, the local Lillywhites have yet been unable to welcome a new signing to the club this summer and have largely had to deal with rumours and reports touting some of their very best players with a big summer exit.
Though that’s been something Spurs fans have been used to over the years, reports from the Daily Telegraph hint at a change. Within their transfer report citing Jose Mourinho’s apparent frustrations at Manchester United’s own lack of activity, they talk about the Red Devils’ reported interest in England star Eric Dier.
Tottenham reportedly value the former Sporting Lisbon man at no less than £50m and are understood to have reaffirmed the fact that there is next to no possibility of him leaving Hotspur Way this summer.
Such is the magnitude of his importance, playing as either a defensive midfielder or a central defender, this news has gone down a storm amongst our local Spurs supporters.
Touted by many of our punters as a potential skipper one day, the idea of seeing him stick around has proved exciting for them.
