Dier: Spurs must keep stars

Eric Dier has stressed the importance of Tottenham holding on to their best players this summer amid ongoing speculation around Harry Kane.

Spurs are determined to keep their prize assets, particularly Kane, with the club prepared to reject even a world record bid for their star striker.

Real Madrid have been credited with a strong interest in Kane and the most likely scenario in which he could be sold is if the player indicated he wanted to move.

But there is no suggestion yet that will be the case, as Tottenham look forward to their new 61,000-seater stadium opening next season. "It is very important the team stays together," Dier said. "We have got a very good team, a very good squad. Every team in the world wants to keep their best players and stay together."

Spurs are hopeful of striking a deal this month for Bordeaux winger Malcom but talks are at an early stage and the 20-year-old would be more likely to arrive in the summer.

Creativity was certainly lacking on Sunday as Mauricio Pochettino's side were held to a 1-1 draw by struggling Southampton, with Kane cancelling out an early own goal from Davinson Sanchez.
