Tottenham defender Eric Dier has signed a new contract with the Premier League club that will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2020.

Dier moved to Tottenham from Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon ahead of the 2013-14 campaign and made 28 league appearances in his maiden season.

The England Under-21 international endeared himself to the Spurs faithful from the off by scoring a last-minute winner in a 1-0 victory at West Ham on his Premier League debut.

Speaking about his new deal, Dier told the club’s official website: “I loved every minute of my first season and to now sign a new deal for another five years, I’m happy and looking forward to the future.

“I believe in myself and my quality but I didn’t really know what to expect and I didn’t think I’d play that many games [in my first season].

“I said at the time I’d try my best and see where it took me, and it’s taken me here. I was really happy with my first season but there is still a lot of work to do, I need to keep improving and I’ll keep on giving my best.

“There is a great core here of young players and even the likes of Christian [Eriksen], Erik [Lamela], Kyle [Walker] and Danny [Rose] are all still young.

“We have a young team, a core of young English players and young players in general and there is such a great future for the club.”

Dier has been an ever-present in Tottenham’s four league games this term, scoring in the 2-2 draw against Stoke City last month.

He has proved a valuable player for Tottenham, featuring at centre-back and full-back for the majority of last term, while head coach Mauricio Pochettino has also used him in a defensive midfield role this season.
