Dier has been a key part of Maurico Pochettino's side this season, having made 45 appearances for the club in all competitions and there is no doubt that they will be looking to keep him at the team next season.

Tottenham face Manchester United in the final game at White Hart Lane on Sunday in the Premier League.

The north Londoners were once again edged out of the title picture as Chelsea secured their fifth championship in 13 seasons after victory at West Bromwich Albion - confirming top spot with two games to spare.

"We have three games to play, we still feel disappointed from last week and it is hard to take off this feeling", Pochettino said yesterday at his press conference.

"The season so far has been good, but when you don't win you feel disappointed", Pochettino told a news conference today.

'It's impossible now to decide which day we will start there but it is in our plan to start to train at our own training ground and then to try to move there for a few days to train'.

Manchester United booked their place in the Europa League final on Thursday night courtesy of a 2-1 aggregate win against La Liga side Celta Vigo at Old Trafford.

"When you are young and you have the chance to play in the U20 World Cup, it's always fantastic to go and play". It will be tough for us and tough for them. You play with pride.

"It will be special, first of all for the fans, the staff, the players, everyone who loves Tottenham", he said.

"No", he insisted. "Tottenham have a history and it is not important if we play at Wembley or the new stadium".

Spurs will contest all their home matches at the spiritual home of English football whilst their new stadium is being constructed ahead of the 2018/19 campaign. That doesn't mean they are happy that it's the end of White Hart Lane but they are excited for the future of the club.
