Despite having been part of the club for nine years and a member of the club’s leadership group in recent seasons, Dier has not been included in any of Postecoglou’s squads for the first five games of the season, including the Carabao Cup match against Fulham, which featured nine changes.
While the details of the conversation between Dier and Levy have not been disclosed, it is reported that there has been no indication of any disagreement or falling out between the two parties. The meeting was called by Levy to discuss Dier’s status and prospects within the club.
Dier’s current contract with Tottenham is set to expire at the end of the season, and as of now, the club has not offered him a new deal. Postecoglou did not select Dier as the captain following Harry Kane’s departure, and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has also been left out of the squad.
There have been speculations linking Dier with a move to the Saudi Pro League, where the transfer window closes at 10pm UK time on Thursday. However, if he remains with Tottenham, he is expected to be included in Postecoglou’s 25-man Premier League squad after the club’s recent sales of Davinson Sanchez and Tanguy Ndombele to Galatasaray. Sanchez’s departure could open the door for Dier to return to the substitutes’ bench, providing cover for Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven.
Hugo Lloris, who has one year left on his contract, has also discussed his future with Daniel Levy. Lloris recently turned down a deadline day move to Nice and, like Dier, has been linked with a potential transfer to Saudi Arabia.
The discussions with both Dier and Lloris could have implications for their roles at the club and the decision-making surrounding their future contracts.
