Breaking: Tottenham sign defender Juan Foyth

Tottenham Hotspur have completed their third signing of the summer by bringing in Argentine defender Juan Foyth from Estudiantes de La Plata.

Third summer signing

Juan Foyth becomes Spurs’ third signing of the summer.

He joins fellow Argentine Paulo Gazzaniga through the door at Hotspur Way, as well as Davinson Sanchez from Ajax.

Mauricio Pochettino has made it clear, with the signings of South Americans Sanchez and Foyth, that he was looking to bolster his central-defender options.

Who is Foyth?

Earlier this summer, Foyth featured for Argentina at Under 20 World Cup.

He featured in all three games, even coming up against Tottenham’s Josh Onomah and Kyle Walker-Peters.

Foyth was promoted to Estudiantes’ first team in January this year.

He made just six appearances for the Argteinian side.

‘Club that believes in young player’

On arrival, Foyth spoke of his excitement to be here.

It was believed that phone calls with Mauricio Pochettino is what convinced him to join.

“I really like this club. I’ve always followed it since I was a boy.

I really like the league. I’m focused and now I’m going to try and make the most of it.

It’s a club that believes in young players and I’m very pleased.”

Serge for the line

Tottenham have left a lot of their deals very late in the window.

Sanchez was the first and even he was only announced on 18 August.

Now, following the signing of Foyth Spurs are looking to also add Serge Auriier.

This transfer had caused a lot of controversy with the Ivorian’s off the field antics.

Aurier now looks close to joining after being given a work permit by the Home Office.
