DIER JOINS BAYERN MUNICH – After a decade at Tottenham


DIER JOINS BAYERN MUNICH – After a decade at Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier has joined Bayern Munich on loan to the end of the season, both clubs said.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed by either club but British media reported that Bayern paid Spurs 3.5 million euros for the 29-year-old England international.

Dier, who had six months left on his Spurs deal, made over 300 appearances for the north London club since 2014 but has featured just four times since Ange Postecoglou took over as manager in June last year.

Dier was mostly used as a defensive midfielder under former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino and can also play at centre back.

His move to Bayern reunites him with former Spurs and England team mate Harry Kane, who has been in prolific form since joining the serial German champions.

Bayern are currently second in the Bundesliga, four points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen, with a game in hand.
