Tottenham reported to have begun transfer negotiations over outcast
By Bruce Grove -

Juan Foyth has impressed enough while on loan at Villarreal and the Spanish side is now negotiating to sign him permanently, Football Insider reports.

The defender has never been a favourite of Jose Mourinho and he was allowed to join the Spanish side on loan for this season after they paid a £1.3million fee.

The agreement has the option of them making the move permanent for £13m when this campaign ends.

However, the report says the Spanish side is looking to keep him permanently for a lower fee.

It claims that Unai Emery has made him a priority signing ahead of the next transfer window and his team is now negotiating with Tottenham.

Spurs will also strengthen their squad when this campaign ends so they need all the money that they can get.

The defender is reportedly keen to remain in Spain after finding more chances of first-team football there.

He has made 25 appearances for them this season and has one goal and two assists.

He was one of Mauricio Pochettino’s favourites but found life tougher under Mourinho.

With the Spurs’ boss eyeing a move for a top-quality centre-back, he would hardly object to losing the former Estudiantes man.

Mistake to sell him. Argentinian international with lots of promise. Perhaps Mourinho will be sacked before we decide to sell him.

I don’t think he was ready for first-team football, so A lone away was always inevitable. However, selling him I feel would be premature.

I’d bring him back for a season avd see how he heats on. Very young but I thought he looked promising.

He wasn’t one of Pochs favourites

He played circa 20 times in two years

He was a player PSG were after, we signed him, he had promise, it didn’t work out.
