Everton re-sign teenage defender Eric Dier
Tuesday 05 July 2011
Everton have re-signed teenage Sporting Lisbon defender Eric Dier on a season-long loan.
The 17-year-old initially linked up with the Toffees in January, playing in the under-18s side which won the FA Premier League academy league final in May.
A new deal has been struck for a whole season this time around and Dier, who was born in England but moved to Portugal when he was seven, will join pre-season training once the formalities of his paperwork have been completed.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
