Versatile defender Eric joined us in July, 2014, and enjoyed a fine debut season.
And what a start to his Spurs career! Eric gained instant hero status with a last-minute winner at West Ham on the opening day of the 2014-15 Premier League season, bursting through from right-back to finish in style at Upton Park!
He followed up with a goal on his home debut in the 4-0 win against QPR.
Eric went on to feature 36 times in all competitons, including 28 (25 starts) in the Premier League, switching between central defensive and right-back roles.
Born in Cheltenham but brought up in Portugal after his parents moved there in 2004, Eric was snapped up by Sporting Lisbon's Academy and progressed through the system to the first team, eventually making 30 appearances.
Capped by England at Under-18, 19 and 20 levels, Eric helped the Young Lions reach the UEFA U21 Finals by appearing in both play-off legs against Croatia in November, 2014. He has nine U21 caps to his name.
