Tottenham have revealed England midfielder Eric Dier will miss the pre-season tour of Asia due to injury. The club have been quick to point out the injury is nothing serious but it will keep him out of the trip to Asia and is less than ideal with the season fast approaching.

Spurs said the 25-year-old would be out for a “short period” after a “procedure to correct an issue detected during medical assessments on the first day of pre-season training”.
Mauricio Pochettino’s Champions League finalists will face Italian champions Juventus in Singapore next Saturday before a clash with Manchester United in Shanghai on July 25. They then return to Europe for the Audi Cup in Munich, with Dier’s availability for that yet to be confirmed, but Pochettino will be hoping he gets the all-clear.
