Tottenham are set to part ways with Eric Dier in the upcoming January transfer window.
That’s according to the report from TeamTalk which claims that the manager Ange Postecoglou has already sanctioned the January exit for the Tottenham veteran.
He does not have the Englishman in his plans and has advised the club’s hierarchy to offload the player.
The 29-year-old defender became a part of the club in the summer of 2014 during Mauricio Pochettino’s tenure, in a £4m deal from Sporting Lisbon.
Dier subsequently enjoyed a decent career with the Lilywhites, accumulating an impressive 363 appearances for the club.
However, his form has been dipping since last season and this season he has completely fallen out of favour under new the manager after failing to impress him.
He has only played three times for Spurs this season, two of those appearances came from the bench.
He has been strongly linked with a move away in January with Levy keen on cashing in on him rather then allowing him to leave on a free in the summer.
The English international has been subject to interest from a number of clubs including AS Roma and Napoli and Fenerbahce.
In fact, it was reported that the Turkish club had sent a board member to England to hold talks with the 29-year-old.
Latest reports in Turkey (via TeamTalk) now claim that a move is starting to take shape and that the defender is edging closer to a January exit.
The move to the Super Lig may not be the preferred option for the player but he is desperate to play regular minutes ahead of the Euro 2024 in the summer.
It is said that Dier’s move is going to be one of Tottenham’s first deals of the January window which will then allow them to sign a new centre-back which is an utmost necessity for Ange.
