Tottenham defender Juan Foyth is set to join Villarreal on a permanent deal, according to reports in his native Argentina.
Foyth spent last season on loan at Villarreall, helping Unai Emery’s side win the Europa League and finish seventh in La Liga.
And it seems the 23-year-old impressed enough for ‘The Yellow Submarine’ to trigger a permanent transfer.
Argentinian outlet Ole claims Villarreal have exercised their option to sign Foyth for €15 million, which the report says is €2 million more than Spurs bought him for from Estudiantes in 2017.
That means Tottenham are set to make a profit on Foyth, but it still feels a bit disappointing to see him leave.
Foyth clearly has plenty of talent and is able to play as a centre-back and a right-back, two positions in which Spurs need to strengthen.
However, the Argentina international is prone to making mistakes in possession and is often accused of being too brave on the ball.
Hopefully, for his own sake, he can cut out those errors and enjoy a decent career in Spain.
