BREAKING NEWS: Former Tottenham Captain set for a sensational return to to former club in January transfer window after latest development

After a nine-year stint in the Premier League, an out-of-favour Tottenham Hotspur player has been linked with a return to his home country. Eric Dier joined Tottenham from Sporting CP in the summer of 2014 for a cost of just £4 million.

The versatile defender soon established himself as a club staple, making over 300 games for the Lillywhites, including matches in the 2015 League Cup final and the 2019 Champions League Final.

Under Mauricio Pochettino, Dier began his career as a defensive midfielder at Tottenham Hotspur, where he forged a powerful partnership with Belgian international Moussa Dembele. Dier was gradually moved into a deeper role over time, and he was mostly employed as a center defender by Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo, and Antonio Conte.

Sporting Lisbon planning January move for Tottenham's Eric Dier

Because of his continuous form at club level, Dier has earned 49 caps for England, representing them in two World Cups and one European Championship. Dier is hoping to make the Euro 2024 squad and is allegedly thinking about his future at Tottenham after a lack of first-team opportunities this season.

Dier has yet to play a minute of Premier League football since Ange Postecoglou took over as manager. The defender has mostly been utilized as a substitute and is not expected to play a significant role in the new manager’s plans.
According to the Daily Mail, Dier was offered to Bayern Munich at the conclusion of last summer, while rumours in Italy indicate that AS Roma’s José Mourinho has remained a distant fan. However, according to The Times, Sporting CP are leading the race to sign the defender, which would be an emotional reunion for the 29-year-old.

Dier began his career in the Portuguese capital, where he grew up. He joined Sporting’s youth team when he was seven years old and became a first team regular when he was only 18 years old.

Dier is fluent in Portuguese and could provide the squad with vital experience as they seek to reclaim the Portuguese crown from local rivals Benfica. The transfer might potentially provide Dier with a way back into the England squad as Gareth Southgate’s side seeks their first trophy since 1966.
