Sources: Tottenham to tell Argentina international to find a new club

Tottenham are ready to tell Argentina international Juan Foyth to find a new club this summer, Football Insider understands.

The 22-year-old defender, who turned 22 last month, has started just one Premier League match this season and failed to make much of an impression under Jose Mourinho.

A Tottenham source has told Football Insider the club are set to grant Foyth his wish of a transfer after blocking a January move for him.

Spurs will look to recoup the £8million fee paid for the centre-back in the summer of 2017.

He was regarded as a protege of countryman Mauricio Pochettino, but has made just 32 appearances for the Londoners in three seasons despite accumulating 10 full Argentina caps.

Foyth had pushed for a loan or permanent move in January after finding himself on the fringes of the team following Mourinho’s arrival.

That was denied by the manager but Tottenham will be more compliant this summer as they look to raise funds for an overhaul of the playing squad.

Pochettino had introduced Foyth gradually into the first team and handed him his Premier League debut last season.

But Foyth made a series of high profile errors and he has made little inroads this season despite a clear downturn in the performances of a once solid defence.

The centre-back, who can also fill in at right-back, has made just seven appearances this season.

Tellingly, he has not made a single matchday squad since the turn of the year, even when Mourinho played a weakened side in the FA Cup.
