Tottenham Hotspur return on the cards for Juan Foyth as Villarreal expected not to make his loan move a permanent deal

Villarreal signed Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth on loan in October 2020. The Argentine struggled for game-time at Spurs and moved to La Liga to get more playing time.

Unai Emery has used Foyth extensively in cup competitions this season. And, there is an option where the Yellow Submarine could sign the defender on a permanent basis. Villarreal can sign the 23-year-old centre-back for £13.5m at the end of his loan spell in the summer. However, it is believed that they would not look to activate that clause. (h/t football.london)

Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth is on loan at Villareal.

Speaking to football.london, Spanish journalist Paco Polit mentioned that it is unlikely that Villareal would want to sign the defender on a permanent basis.

“At this point I don’t think it’s likely that Villarreal will exert that option to buy next summer. I don’t think they will go for that.”

Uncertain future

Foyth has not cemented his place as a starter in La Liga. He only has 3 starts to his name, in addition to 2 league appearances off the bench.

However, his tally of 11 appearances in all competitions for the Yellow Submarine this season is already more than what he got at Spurs last season.

Juan Foyth failed to cement a starting spot at Tottenham last season.

Foyth only made 7 appearances for the Lilywhites in the 2019/20 season, with just 1 of those being a Premier League start.

Adding an option to buy the player does imply that Jose Mourinho could be open to losing the player. However, Foyth is just 23 years old and can prove to be an important squad player in the future.

It could also come down to how much Foyth wants to feature for Tottenham, and it remains to be seen if the club would loan him out again or integrate him within the squad next season.
