Spurs might look to cash in on first team player before he leaves for free

By Mehdi Gokal -

According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier has held crunch talks with chairman Daniel Levy regarding his future at the club. 

The experienced defender has been shunned by new manager Ange Postecoglou who has not been impressed by the Englishman. He does not seem to have the Englishman in his plans.

He is yet to feature for Spurs this season and was not even been named in the squad that played Fulham in the League Cup despite the manager making 9 changes.

He has previously been linked with a move to Fulham but reports claimed that the player would rather stay and fight for a place in the team.

The 29-year-old was even linked with a move to Bayern with claims that Kane had recommended him to the German giants.

However, the player ended up staying at Spurs. And with his contract expiring next summer, it is possible that he could leave on a free transfer next year.

The specifics of the meeting have not been disclosed, but it is described as a “frank conversation” with no indications of any disputes or fallouts.

The talks likely revolved around Dier’s position at the club, potential playing time, and his role in Postecoglou’s plans.

With Spurs ending up selling Davinson Sanchez to Galatasaray and loaning out Joe Rodon and Japhet Tanganga, Eric Dier is now perhaps the only senior centre-back available in face of an injury to Micky van de Ven or Cristian Romero.

However, one interesting development is the emergence of 18-year-old center-back Ashley Phillips, who joined Tottenham from Blackburn Rovers during the summer transfer window.

Reportedly, Postecoglou has been impressed by Phillips and intends to include him as a squad player, which could further impact Dier’s role within the team.

With his contract expiring next summer, Dier’s future at the club has been in question, and it appears that discussions between him and Chairman Levy were necessary to clarify his role and prospects.
