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.
