Tottenham defender Juan Foyth will join Leeds United on loan next season, according to Nicolas Bozza.

The 22-year-old, who has struggled for chances under Jose Mourinho, will spend the season at Elland Road and will link up with fellow Argentinian Marcelo Biesla, who is on the verge of ending the Whites’ 16-year wait for a return to the Premier League.

Prior to the suspension of English football in March, Leeds sat top of the Championship table, but more importantly, were seven points clear of third-place Fulham with just nine matches remaining in the season.

Foyth has made just seven appearances for Spurs this term – with more than half of those coming whilst Mauricio Pochettino was in charge – and hasn’t featured since being pulled off at half-time during the draw with Norwich City in December after a poor first-half display, meaning a summer departure looked inevitable.

With the 2021 Copa America exactly 365 days away, the centre-back will be looking for regular minutes to enhance his chances of adding to his 10 Argentina caps – especially with nine of those coming in 2019.

And with Leeds going to be in need of Premier League experience ahead of their long-waited topflight return, it looks an ideal move for both parties.



  1. foyth is a very good player and really needs game time to develop and this loan to leeds will give him that chance –i think he will come back to us a very much improved figure

    • Anyone who claims he is a good player clearly knows NOTHING about football.
      He is 22 years of age and has done nothing but shown lack of maturity or understanding of the laws of the game. I’ve never seen a defender have such a high rate of fouls, cards and giving away possession per 90 minutes.

      • You will have your opinion as others will have theirs but I see no need for stupid personal comments when you’re presenting your case……unless of course you’re a closet total expert on the game!

  2. He will need to improve BIG TIME if he wants a regular 1st team place. Have only seen him a handful times, but as yet, I’ve seen nothing to convince me that he will make the grade at Tottenham.

    • Yep, I think he would be better if he went to a top manager in Germany who can teach him disapline or he just needs to drop a league where they can get away with more mistakes

  3. Players like Foyth and Lamela have only survived at Tottenham because our former manager (who was amazing!) was of the same nation. Lamela who does score goals and assist, is so bad at giving away possession and fouling players, that his negatives outweigh his positive impact.

    Foyth has little positivies. Unless he can learn to play a new role further up the field but why would spurs want to invest that time and money into him at 22.

  4. I am with Johnmax on this one.
    Delighted it will only be a loan(if that indeed is the case) as selling him would be a mistake.
    Given game time, he will return a better player for sure.
