Eric Dier has stated that he intends to leave Tottenham to play abroad again at some point in his career.
The England international began his career with Sporting CP, whom Spurs will face in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Dier joined Tottenham on a permanent basis in 2014 and was one of the club’s first signings under Mauricio Pochettino; only Hugo Lloris, Ben Davies, and Harry Kane remain from that squad.
Eric Dier to leave Tottenham?
In an interview with The Times, Dier, who is 28 and is now just under two seasons away from being due a testimonial at Spurs, stated that he would like to play on the continent once more.
“Who knows where football will take me in two or three years?” Dier said.
“I’m still young, I’ve got a lot of time left. I’m looking after myself. I think I will play abroad again at some point in the future, but there’s no rush on that. I would really enjoy experiencing a different type of football again. I think it will happen at some point and I think I look forward to experiencing football in a different culture because I loved it as a kid as well.”
