Tottenham Hotspur have already seen incomings and outgoings to their squad so far during the transfer window.

Kieran Trippier departed for Atletico Madrid last week and was followed out the door yesterday by Vincent Janssen, who has made the move to Mexican side C.F. Monterrey (Spurs official).

Journalist Martin Lipton revealed to talkSPORT that believes Eric Dier could be one of the next casualties at Spurs due to the fact that the midfielder is not counted as a ‘homegrown’ player.

Dier was born in England but he emigrated to Portugal with his family when he was seven and he was raised there and despite being a full international for the Three Lions, he still takes up one of the 17 places in the 25-man Spurs squad that are allocated to non-locally trained players (Football365).

The 25-year-old was forced to sit out the club’s pre-season tour of the Far East after undergoing a medical procedure to correct an issue detected during medical assessments on the first day of pre-season training at Hotspur Way. (Spurs official).


Dier struggled last season with illness and injury and could face a difficult prospect of first team football in North London next season following the signing of Tanguy Ndombele along with the impressive performances of Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko.
