Tottenham Hotspur prepare to open talks with Eric Dier over a new contract at the club, according to a report.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Eric Dier is reportedly in line for a contract extension.

The 25-year-old struggled for minutes in the early stages of the 2019-20 campaign under Mauricio Pochettino but has been a key figure since Jose Mourinho arrived as head coach last month.

Manchester United have recently been linked with a move for the England international, who will see his current deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium expire in the summer of 2021.

However, according to The Telegraph, the former Sporting Lisbon youngster will be offered fresh terms by Spurs following his revival under the new management.

Dier has started six of Tottenham's last seven Premier League matches, while he also featured in four of the club's six group matches in the Champions League.

The Englishman has contributed 11 goals in 223 outings for his current side in all competitions since signing from Sporting, initially as a right-back, in the summer of 2014.
