The agent of Tottenham defender Juan Foyth, Claudio Curti, has revealed they are looking at the possibility of the defender leaving the club on loan this month.

The Argentine defender joined Spurs from Club Estudiantes de La Plata in an £11.7m deal back in August 2017 but has found playing time hard to come by in his two years at the club.

This season he has managed seven appearances and 262 minutes in all competitions, with his only starts coming against Red Star and Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

It had been suggested that he could leave on loan in the January transfer window, although Tottenham manager José Mourinho ruled that out in the middle of December.

That was pretty definitive, but his agent says differently, telling Inter Dipendenza; “We are evaluating the possibility of going out in the January market. We wait for this week to find clarity with Tottenham.”

That suggests that a move has not been ruled out quite as definitively as first thought, with a decision instead set to be made this week.

Perhaps much of it will rely on what Tottenham do in terms of incomings this month. If Spurs were to bring in cover, there is every chance Foyth will be allowed to leave.

If that doesn’t happen, a move seems unlikely, with him instead left needing to convince Mourinho he is worth more playing time in the second half of the campaign.
