Eric Dier has been pictured for the first time training with his new Tottenham Hotspur teammates.
The England under-21 international has signed a five-year deal following a £4 million move from Sporting Lisbon and Mauricio Pochettino deserves praise for securing the future of one of England’s best young defensive talents.
The Argentinian coach wasted no time getting Dier into the thick of things ahead of a very important Premier League season for the club.
Dier’s chances of regular first team football at White Hart Lane are difficult to gauge because there are some very experienced players currently ahead of him in the pecking order.
However, there have been reports which suggest Pochettino could sell one of, or both, Michael Dawson and Younes Kaboul, which could fast track the 20-year-old’s evolution into the first team at the club.
Spurs have recruited a superb long term prospect who should form the spine of the team for several years.
