Toffees re-sign Sporting teen

The 18-year-old spent five months in England earlier this year and

trained with the Premier League club’s reserves as well as

featuring for their Under-18 team. Everton were impressed and have

again offered Dier the opportunity to continue his development on

Merseyside. David Moyes could offer the defender a permanent deal

at the end of the season if there are again signs of potential.

Dier was born in Cheltenham, but moved to Portugal at the age of

seven before signing a contract with Sporting in April 2010.
