Leeds United are interested in signing Tottenham defender Juan Foyth in a £15m deal after their promotion to the Premier League, according to The Sun.

The 23-year-old, who has two years left his current deal, has fallen out of favour since the arrival of Jose Mourinho – making just two appearances under the Portuguese – and hasn’t featured since late-December.

Foyth was brought to England by ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino from Argentinian outfit Estudiantes for £8m in 2017 – and now another Argentine manager Marcelo Biesla wants to sign him and improve his Leeds squad after the Yorkshire-based outfit recently ended their 16-year wait for Premier League football.

Foyth has played just eight games for Spurs this season, but didn’t play a single minute post-lockdown – leaving his future at the club in serious doubt.

We relayed a story from The Sun in May that the defender was a shock target for Barcelona, but those rumours have gone quiet, although Foyth still looks set to leave Tottenham in some capacity this summer.
