Some Spurs fans are divided over whether Eric Dier still has a future at North London after reports emerged that the England international was in discussions with the club over a new contract.

Dier’s current deal with the Lilywhites is set to run out next summer, meaning he would enter the 2020/21 season in the final year of his contract.

The Daily Star reported recently that the 26-year-old is said to be seeking assurances that he would be used as a central defender rather than a defensive midfielder before putting pen to paper on a new contract.

The former Sporting Lisbon man did feature at centre back on a few occasions before the footballing calendar was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While some fans believed that Dier could thrive in central defence, others insisted that the club should move him on this summer.

I have always believed that centre half is Dier’s best position. He just seems a lot more comfortable on the ball when he has the game in front of him rather than having to turn without knowing what’s behind him. It will be much harder for him to get into the team as a centre half as he has more competition to deal with but I would like to see him stay and compete for a place.
