The original deal was due to run until the end of the season with a further option for 12 months.

However, according to The Athletic, Dier has now met the contractual obligations to turn the move into a permanent transfer.

Bayern are believed to have paid Spurs £3.5million for the loan deal.

It means they will effectively sign the former England international as a free agent.

Club chiefs are said to be pleased with Dier’s contribution and leadership skills since joining them.

Dier has so far played six Bundesliga games, helping them to one clean sheet.

It means Dier will remain with Harry Kane in the quest to lift the German league title.

Bayern currently sit eight points behind Xabi Alonso’s record-breaking league leaders Bayer Leverkusen.


Alonso is said to be on Bayern’s list of candidates to take over in the summer after it was announced Thomas Tuchel would step down at the end of the season.

Tuchel’s team will face Freiburg tomorrow before facing Lazio in the second leg of the Champions League last 16.

Dier has played just six games for the Bundesliga outfit
