Tottenham Hotspur have already made their first major announcement ahead of the 2020/21 Premier League season by handing Oliver Skipp a new deal.
However, Spurs fans have got what they wanted all along. Eric Dier has signed a new four-year deal with the club, keeping him in north London until 2024.
Spurs had been confident they could persuade Dier to sign a new deal and now it seems they have got their wish.
Dier, 26, was a firm favourite of former boss Mauricio Pochettino, making more than 200 appearances for the Argentine.
The England international has played 15 games in the Premier League for his successor Jose Mourinho this season, supplying two assists, making 1.2 tackles per game, averaging 1.1 interceptions, and completing a staggering 3.1 clearances on average (via WhoScored).
He has now ended any speculation about his future by inking a new deal, as his previous contract was set to expire next year.
Dier initially switched from the defence to the midfield in his second season with Spurs, before reverting back to his original position, and he has impressed in the heart of the defence in recent weeks.
He has been a regular under Mourinho so far, although a four-match ban brought a premature halt to proceedings.
Dier has nailed down a place in the starting lineup as a defender and since the Premier League restart he has helped the team keep two clean sheets in four appearances, which implies things are heading in the right direction.
The fact he has signed a new contract bodes well for the future as the Lilywhites look to resume the hunt for silverware next season.
Tottenham fans, has Dier made the right decision? Let us know down below!
