Eric Dier career history until 2020
This FM 2014 player profile of Eric Dier shows a talented and young English centre back, one that you can get at a fairly low price at the start of the game. Dier starts at Sporting in Portugal and in my test save he managed to get back to England after passing through Germany and finally ended up at Manchester United for 16.5 million.
He developed into a solid central defender, with good strength and decent speed, good marking, tackling and heading and very good mental attributes. That progress also brought him into the England national team, got 30 caps until 2020. Definitely a good buy for 4 million, he would surely develop even better under human management.
Best buy rating: 8.5/10
