Tottenham Hotspur are planning to sell midfielder Eric Dier in the summer transfer window if he fails to sign a new deal with the club, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
It is suggested that the 26-year-old, whose current deal expires in 2021, is reluctant to agree to fresh terms at Spurs due to his lack of game time under Jose Mourinho.
Daniel Levy is keen to avoid a situation like they have recently had with Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld whereby they allow a player to enter his last 12 months of his contract -which would mean that, if he doesn’t sign a new contract, they will allow him to leave at the end of this campaign.
Dier is believed to want assurances that he will become a more prominent figure in the team and it is also thought that he would like to play at centre-back rather than in midfield. However, having not started a single Premier League game since their game against Chelsea on December 22nd (Transfermarkt), he is not currently one of Mourinho’s regulars.
Is Eric Dier finished at Tottenham?
It seems as though plenty of Spurs fans would actually welcome the 40-time England international‘s departure, with many taking to Twitter to suggest that they should just get rid of him in the summer. Here is what some had to say…

I love Dier, but he’s just not good enough to play for Spurs anymore. Sell him and replace him.

Just sell him. On his day great player. But more often it’s not his day. Buy Ruben Dias and Ajer please

Get rid. Nowhere near the player he was. Mourinho won’t have another Erikson scenario.
