Tottenham are close to agreeing a deal to sign Argentine defender Juan Foyth, according to multiple reports.

A number of outlets, including Sky Sports, are claiming Foyth is set to join Spurs for around £8 million.

But The Times suggests the completion of the transfer could depend on whether Tottenham are willing to agree to two clauses.

Foyth’s current club Estudiantes want the 19-year-old to return on a six-month loan. They also want to include a sell-on clause in the deal.

Those clauses shouldn’t be too much of an issue unless someone at Spurs is unwilling to agree to them.
