Eric Dier ready to run down Tottenham contract

Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Eric Dier is looking to run down his contract and leave as a free agent next summer.

According to a report by Football Insider, Eric Dier has made a decision regarding his future. The 29-year-old wants to part ways with the club in the summer of 2024. He is not looking to leave in the winter despite not getting any minutes so far this season.

Dier’s £85k-a-week contract runs out at the end of the ongoing season. Initially, there were talks of him getting a new deal but those talks have collapsed. The 29-year-old won’t be offered a new deal to extend his stay at the club. As a result, his departure from the club is certain.

Since arriving at the club back in 2014, Dier has been a very important part of their first team. He has featured in over 350 matches for the London club and has even contributed towards 25 goals.

He has been used in different roles over the years and the 29-year-old has delivered on a consistent basis. Until the end of last season, the England international was a very important member of their team. But, a lot has changed since the arrival of Ange Postecoglou.

The first thing that the Australian manager did after taking charge was to look for a new centre-back. He wanted to bolster his defence and Spurs ended up signing Micky van de Ven from Wolfsburg. The Dutch international has formed a deadly pair in defence with World Cup winner Cristian Romero.

The duo have been doing wonders and Spurs as a team have been doing exceptional. Meanwhile, Dier has fallen down the pecking order since the arrival of Postecoglou. He is yet to feature in any of the matches for the London club.

With him falling down the pecking order and his contract expiring, there were a few clubs interested in signing him during the winter. Even Spurs are ready to part ways with him in January. But, the payer has different ideas. He wants to run down his contract and leave the club next summer.

Dier doesn’t plan on making a move in the winter. He will wait for the end of the season and then leave as a free agent. The 29-year-old feels he will have more options to choose from during the summer.
