Tottenham centre-half Eric Dier has revealed ex-teammate Dele Alli is “happy to have a new challenge” at Besiktas.
Alli departed Spurs in January for Everton, and was moved on by the Toffees to the Turkish side this summer.
The 26-year-old struggled to make an impact for manager Frank Lampard at the Goodison Park club.
“I spoke to him after his first game,” revealed Dier, per Evening Standard.
“I think he is happy to have a new challenge, somewhere fresh. I think he is excited by a new experience from a life point of view as well and all I heard were positive things from him.
“He is young. 26. I think we all know in football things can change very quickly for anyone at any time so everything is possible. It is just up to us as individuals.”
