Foyth permanently moves to Villarreal from Tottenham

Villarreal confirmed on Friday that the Argentina international has signed a five-year contract.

“Villarreal CF took the option to buy Juan Foyth, who played for the Yellows on loan in the 2020-21 season,” said declaration club read.

“The Argentinian player will be a ‘groguet’ for the next five campaigns (until June 2026).”

Tottenham then posted an ad on their website, who said: “We can confirm that Villarreal has exercised the option to sign Juan Foyth permanently.”

How many games has Foyth played for Tottenham?

Foyth joined Spurs from Argentina’s Estudiantes in 2017 and made his first EFL Cup appearance against Barnsley that year.

He had to wait until November 2018 to make his Premier League debut for the London side and has played 32 times in all competitions.

Foyth also has 12 caps for Argentina, after appearing in their 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Chile and Colombia this month.
