Tottenham Hotspur have made a promising start to life after lockdown since the Premier League returned behind closed doors earlier this month. 

Spurs followed up a hard-fought draw with Manchester United by beating West Ham to pick up their first win in eight games (BBC).

After conceding the penalty against the Red Devils, Eric Dier was part of the side that kept a clean sheet in the 2-0 victory over the Hammers.

Jose Mourinho praised the Englishman for his hard work in an interview with the club’s official website, saying: “Eric is playing really well and adapting very well to a position that he thinks, and personally I also think, is a great position for him.”

However, the Lilywhites still haven’t offered Dier a new deal, although this should not be a cause for concern. According to The Athletic, the 26-year-old wants to stay at Spurs and he is building a strong relationship with Mourinho.

Moreover, the club are confident that he will sign an extension in the summer, as per Football Insider. A source told the outlet that early indications suggest both sides will be able to reach an agreement in a matter of weeks.

Dier, who was a favourite of Mauricio Pochettino, has played 16 games in the Premier League this season, supplying two assists, making 1.2 tackles and averaging 3.1 clearances per game (via WhoScored).

The England international has had quite a roller-coaster of a career during his time in north London so far, as he has been plagued by multiple injuries, illness and mixed form over the years.

Nevertheless, he believes he can flourish in the defence under the Portuguese and intends to establish himself as a regular in the starting lineup. Dier can play in a variety of positions and it is his versatility which arguably makes him most useful, as it earned him four consecutive starts in a row and praise from Mourinho.

While Spurs are still waiting to find out if he will be banned for allegedly bringing the game into disrepute (The Sun), he will be looking to consolidate his position in the busy schedule ahead.

Tottenham fans, do you hope that Dier will sign a new contract with the club? Let us know down below!
