Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has vehemently denied claims that Eric Dier is leaving the club in January.

Recent reports suggested that the England midfielder/defender is to be sold in the winter transfer market with Manchester City a possible destination.

However, Pochettino has no plans to get rid of the 22-year-old who signed a new long-term deal with Spurs in September.

“Absolutely not. Eric Dier is our player,” said Pochettino after Wednesday’s 3-0 win over Hull City.

“He extended his contract and improved his salary after the Euros. There is no doubt that his future is here at Tottenham.”

Chelsea, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Barcelona have also been linked with Dier.
