Tottenham defender Juan Foyth has signed a new deal at the club and will spend next season on loan at Villarreal.

The young defender has been handed seven caps for Argentina, and is said to have been Villarreal’s main target to reinforce their backline this summer.
Foyth will join up with his national team this week ahead of meeting his new team-mates, with World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Bolivia to come.
Sportsmail has reported that Tottenham have been actively on the hunt for another defender.
The club have now turned their attentions to a late swoop for Chelsea stalwart Antonio Rudiger after their attempts to sign Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar fell short.
