Tottenham starlet Eric Dier explains why the future is bright at White Hart Lane

The youngster has enjoyed a great start to the season in a new defensive midfield role.

Tottenham youngster Eric Dier has revealed his excitement at the club’s future prospects, in an interview with Spurs TV.

The 21-year old signed an extension on his current deal yesterday - keeping him at the club until 2020 - and he highlighted his belief in the future of the club as a main factor in committing long-term.

“Yeah of course (I believe the club has a good future)… when you look at the training ground, when you look at the young squad and the new stadium coming through, the club’s in a great place going forward as long as everyone can stick together,” said Dier.

“We’ve got such a good young core of players and a great training ground, with a great stadium coming up, so everything is looking very exciting.”

Dier joined Nabil Bentaleb, Josh Onomah, Harry Winks and Alex Pritchard in extending his contract this summer and evidence of the ‘young core’ of players at the club is plain to see.

After a seemingly scatter-gun approach in recent years, the Spurs hierarchy appear to have refocused their plans for the club.

Mauricio Pochettino looks to have the full backing of the board and will be given the time and space to nurture this young Tottenham team.

The lead up to the new stadium will come with a period of relative austerity and in the Argentine, Spurs have the right man to get the maximum out of the young talent at the club.

Dier is among the brightest of those and his glowing review of the Lilywhite’s prospects is indicative of the feel-good factor currently in ample supply at White Hart Lane.
