‘you’ve got to go’ – Pundit issues transfer message to 29-year-old Tottenham ace

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier has struggled for regular game time at the north London club this season.

The 29-year-old is no longer a key part of Ange Postecoglou’s first-team plans and former Premier League midfielder Danny Murphy has urged the England international to move on in January.

talkSPORT pundit Danny Murphy this week [11 October, 12.50pm) said: “He [Dier] has got himself in a situation. Obviously, with a change in manger, sometimes you find yourself out of favour, and you’ve got to cut your ties, you’ve got to go.”

Dier is still very much at the peak of his powers and he needs to play regularly at this stage of his career. With the European Championships coming up next summer, he will want to cement his place in the England starting lineup and he is unlikely to be able to do that sitting on the bench at Tottenham.

He was linked with the move away from the club during the summer transfer window as well but a move did not materialise.

It remains to be seen whether Tottenham can find a suitable destination for him during the winter transfer window.

The 29-year-old has proven himself in the Premier League over the years and he could be a useful acquisition for most clubs.

Dier is versatile enough to operate as a full-back, central defender as well as a defensive midfielder. His versatility makes him an invaluable asset for clubs. His ability to slot into a back four as well as a back three will add some much-needed tactical flexibility to the side as well.

Given his situation at Tottenham, he could be available for a reasonable price in January and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
