Eric Dier has claimed that he wants to have his ashes scattered in the Tottenham Hotspur stadium when he dies, in a show of remarkable commitment to the north London side.

The 27-year-old joined Spurs in 2014 and has gone on to make almost 300 appearances for the Premier League outfit, using his versatility as both a centre-back and midfielder to remain a key part of the squad.

His poor form has seen him dropped from the side by Jose Mourinho this season, which may come as a surprise, given the Portuguese coach's immediate affinity with Dier, as seen in the Amazon documentary 'All or Nothing'.

Despite Dier's struggles to break into the starting lineup, and his falling out of favour with fans and manager, the England star is determined to see out the rest of his days – and then some – at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

The Spurs man was asked where he would like his ashes to be scattered when he dies during an interview with the Evening Standard, and he selected the current home of his beloved Tottenham.

“I’d have my ashes scattered in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium,” Dier said.

Not even the Spurs fans would be able to boo loud enough to get him off the pitch that way – smart thinking. In all seriousness though, it's a sweet, if a bit morbid, gesture.

That wasn't all that the ex-Everton and Sporting star admitted to during the interview. He also confessed to being a big supporter of the Queen, and is engrossed in the hit series 'The Crown', a drama based on the lives of the Royal family.

"I love the Queen – I’m a big fan of [the TV series] The Crown," he said.

I guess it was a toss-up between the Tottenham Hotspur stadium and Buckingham Palace, then.
