Eric Dier: Tottenham would prefer Champions League games at WHL

Tottenham's players would prefer to play their Champions League home games at White Hart Lane, says Eric Dier.

Spurs have started work on their new 61,000-seat stadium and that means facing Monaco at Wembley on Wednesday.

Midfielder Dier, 22, said: “We are playing at Wembley and the fans are really going to enjoy that and so will we.

“Obviously, we'd like to play at White Hart Lane — that's our home ground.

“But the club is building a new stadium so the situation is perfectly understandable.

“To be able to play at Wembley in the Champions League is going to be a fantastic experience.

“Not many people are going to be able to say they did that. Everyone is looking forward to playing at such a prestigious venue."
