Leeds United are interested in signing Tottenham defender Juan Foyth on loan in January, according to reports in Argentina.

Earlier this week we relayed a story claiming Foyth will consider leaving Spurs in the winter transfer window if his first-team chances don’t improve.

The 20-year-old Argentinian is yet to make his Premier League debut for Tottenham despite joining the club all the way back in the summer of 2017.

All but one of his eight appearances last season came in the domestic cups, and Foyth is unlikely to stand in for the injured Jan Vertonghen in upcoming games.

Now, according to AS Argentina, Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa – who is also Argentinian and mentored Mauricio Pochettino before the Spurs boss went into coaching – is keen to take Foyth to Elland Road.

It is believed Bielsa wants to strengthen at centre-back and sees Foyth as an ideal recruit.

Tottenham would be wise to sanction a loan deal rather than a permanent transfer – Foyth remains highly-rated and recently received his first call-up to the senior Argentinian national team.
