TOTTENHAM will look to sell Eric Dier if he does not sign a new contract with the club, according to reports.
The Daily Mail report that the England midfielder – who was recently snapped on a budget easyJet flight – is reluctant to commit his future to the team due to a lack of playing time.
Dier’s current deal expires next year and Daniel Levy is said to be eager to avoid another case of top players entering the final year of their deal.
That has been the case with high profile stars including Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld.
Dier, 26, has not started a game in the Premier League since before Christmas and wants assurances over his first-team future.
He has reportedly also expressed a desire to play at centre-back rather than holding midfield.
It is believed that a number of European clubs could be interested in a move for Dier.
He made his professional debut at Sporting Lisbon before making a £4million switch to North London in 2014.
Dier has gone on to make 200 appearances for Spurs and gained 40 caps for England.
But whether he can add to that hangs in the balance owing to his time on the bench.
Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate is unlikely to pick someone without regular playing time as part of his Euro 2020 squad.
