Eric Dier could return to Sporting for free or as early as January

Eric Dier, a 29-year-old England international center-back who also plays as a midfielder, could be returning to Sporting. According to ‘The Spurs Express’, Sporting has already opened negotiations to try to return the defender, who is out of contract with Tottenham in June next year.

In his tenth season at Tottenham, Eric Dier is no longer an option in the team now coached by Australian coach Ange Postecgolu.

Trained at Sporting, the 29-year-old English defender, who left the Lions in 2014/2015 to join Spurs, intends to have more minutes of play, still hoping to be present in the next European Championship, in 2024.

Hence, according to the same source, there is the possibility of Sporting making a formal offer to Tottenham, already at the reopening of the market, in January, to rescue Eric Dier as a winter reinforcement.
