Eric Dier is expected to leave the club as a free agent at the end of the season.
“Dyer’s contract talks with Tottenham Hotspur have broken down. According to the publication’s sources, Dier wants to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season rather than through the January transfer window.”
Dyer joined Tottenham from Sporting in Portugal ahead of the 2014-15 season, where he impressed in a variety of positions, including defensive midfielder, fullback, and center back. However, his form gradually declined, and in 2020-21 he was one of the worst performers alongside Davinson Sanchez, and his place in the team gradually diminished.
Antonio Conte’s arrival seemed to revitalize him. He bounced back in the early stages of the 2021-22 season with some good performances and settled perfectly into the back three, shaking off his struggles from the previous campaign. Dyer’s performances helped Spurs finish fourth in the league and return to the UEFA Champions League (UCL).
But within a season, they were back to square one. The 2022-23 season was arguably the worst of Dyer’s career. Dier was the direct cause of a number of goals conceded as he made ridiculous mistakes in a central defense that needed stability, and Tottenham finished eighth in the league with a poor run of form. In fact, it’s safe to say that Dier played a major role in Tottenham’s struggles.
He was completely relegated to the bench this season under new manager Enze Postecoglou. This was due to the arrival of Mickey van der Penn in the summer transfer window. Under Postecoglou, Tottenham are off to their best start of the season, and van der Vaart has been solid alongside Christian Romero, helping the team rise.
Naturally, talk of his departure has begun to circulate. According to European transfer market expert Nicolo Skrera, “There is a possibility that Dier could leave Tottenham. He is not in Postecoglou’s plans. He hasn’t played a single game this season and AS Roma have shown interest in him.” In addition, the British newspaper The Times reported that “Sporting are in talks to bring back Dier, whose contract with Spurs expires next year. They could also offer a reduced fee in January.” In other words, it looks like he’s on his way out. 무지개토토
However, he is likely to remain at Spurs until next summer, when he becomes a free agent, rather than in the upcoming January transfer window. “Tottenham will be keen to sell Dier and cash in on the transfer fee,” says Football Insider. However, Dier is looking forward to next summer as he will have more options and offers as a free agent,” Football Insider reported.
