Juan Foyth has been included into the Tottenham Champions League squad for the knockout rounds of the competition. The Argentine did not find a place in the previous squad since Tottenham had too many non-locally trained players.
Sky Sports reports that teams are limited to 17 non-locally trained players in their squad of 25, but Mousa Dembele’s departure in the January window has opened up a slot.
Foyth has been impressive for Tottenham this season and did a great job when Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen were struggling with injuries.
The 21-year-old even scored the winner against Crystal Palace in the league a few months ago, and his last appearance also came against the Eagles in our 2-0 FA Cup defeat.
The report adds that Vincent Janssen hasn’t made it to the Champions League squad despite being included in the Premier League squad by Mauricio Pochettino. The Dutch striker was unable to seal a move away from the club but could play some games in the league until Harry Kane returns.
Tottenham have a problem regarding the number of non-locally trained players in the side, and Mauricio Pochettino needs to address this before making moves in the next transfer window.
Eric Dier is English but is considered as non-locally trained due to his formative years at Sporting Lisbon, while Ben Davies has the same issue due to his time in Wales.
