England defender Eric Dier has triggered an option to make his move to Bayern Munich permanent this summer to signal the end of his Tottenham career.

Dier, 30, joined Bayern on loan until the end of the season in January after he fell out of favour at Spurs.

The deal included a clause which would activate a new 12-month contract at the Allianz Arena if he played a certain number of games at Bayern.

Dier's contract with Tottenham was set to expire on 30 June.

He has played six times for Thomas Tuchel's side, including four starts for the defending Bundesliga champions.

Cheltenham-born Dier joined Tottenham in a £4m deal from Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon in 2014 and made 274 Premier League appearances for the club.

However, he made just one league start under Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou before he followed Harry Kane to Bavaria.

Dier has been capped 49 times by England since making his debut for the Three Lions in November 2015.
