Eric Dier has signed a new contract committing him to Tottenham until 2021.

The 22-year-old has established himself among the club's key players in his two seasons and also become a regular in the England team.

His new five-year deal comes shortly after Christian Eriksen re-committed himself to Mauricio Pochettino's team and amid the expectation Harry Kane and Kyle Walker will do similarly.

Tottenham recruited Dier for £4million from Sporting Lisbon in 2014. Following a season of playing in defence, Pochettino transformed him into the classy defensive midfielder instrumental to much of their progress.

On Wednesday they host Monaco at Wembley Stadium in their first Champions League fixture for five years.

Dier is expected to retain his place and continue his long-term midfield partnership for club and country with Dele Alli after Saturday's 4-0 Premier League win at Stoke.
