19-year-old centre back agrees five-year deal with Spurs after leaving Estudiantes

Argentine defender Juan Foyth has finally completed his expected transfer to Tottenham Hotspur from Estudiantes.

The 19-year-old has been linked with Spurs all summer and the club announced his arrival this afternoon.

Foyth, an under-20 Argentina international, was linked with both Tottenham and Paris-Saint Germain in July and at one stage it seemed like Mauricio Pochettino would miss out on the centre back.

But the boss has now got his man and the defender has signed a contract until June 2022 with the Premier League club.

With Kevin Wimmer moving to Stoke City on Tuesday, Foyth is likely to be the fourth choice centre back, especially as Cameron Carter-Vickers recently moved to Sheffield United on loan.

Tottenham are expected to do more business before the transfer window shuts at 11pm tomorrow (Thursday).
