Eric Dier has joined Bayern Munich on loan with an option to buy

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

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed by either club but British media reported that Bayern paid Spurs 3.5 million euros ($3.84 million) for the 29-year-old England international.

Spurs have announced the signing of Radu Dragusin as replacement Dier.

Eric 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.

“He’s long been in our thinking for this transfer window. Eric will be a valuable part of our defence. His sporting abilities and international experience will help the team both on the pitch and in the changing room,” Bayern said.

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

His move to Bayern reunites him with former Spurs and England teammate 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.
