Club(s)
Despite being born in Gloucestershire, Dier was brought up in Lisbon since the age of seven, and he spent his youth career with SC de Portugal from the age of nine. He signed a professional contract  with SC in April 2010, despite having interest from Arsenal FC, Tottenham Hotspur FC and Manchester United FC. Dier joined Everton FC on loan from January 2011, remaining eighteen months within the club's youth teams. He returned to Sporting and made his debut with their B team in August 2012. He rose to the first team, making 26 Primeira Liga appearances, scoring once, before a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur FC on 26 August 2014 for £4million. The 2016-17 close season ended with him being linked with a move to Manchester United FC.
