Writing for Football.London, Spurs journalist Alasdair Gold has claimed Juan Foyth is more or less guaranteed to seal a permanent move away next summer.
Signing for Villarreal on loan with a £13.5 million option, Foyth could leave Tottenham on a permanent deal next summer and it is practically a foregone conclusion according to Gold.
Much has been made of Tottenham’s transfer business before deadline day, with the club sealing moves for a plethora of star signings.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty, Joe Hart, Sergio Reguilon, Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius joined the club either on loan or permanently, with chairman Daniel Levy now turning his attention to how he can make up the difference.
Among the outgoings, Ryan Sessegnon left on a season-long loan to Hoffenheim, while Oliver Skipp and Troy Parrott were moved on to the Championship for the remainder of 2020/2021 (Alasdair Gold).
Kyle Walker-Peters joined Southampton on a permanent deal, helping the signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, and now fellow Spurs youngster Foyth has been tipped to follow.
Gold, dropping news for Football.London, hints the loan to La Liga is a formality and he is more or less heading out the exit door permanently this summer.
Right move for Foyth?
Ex-Spurs manager and fan favourite Mauricio Pochettino was a big fan of his compatriot, hailing him as ‘fantastic‘ when he was at the Tottenham helm, with the 6 foot 2 youngster displaying promise early on under the former boss.
However, under Jose Mourinho, he has been used sparingly – and a loan-to-buy move could benefit his playing time and Spurs’ efforts to balance the books after a summer of heavy spending.
