Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to comments made by Alasdair Gold about defender Juan Foyth.
The Argentinian, valued at £9m on Transfermarkt, has been out on loan with Spanish side Villarreal this season after putting pen-to-paper on a new deal that sees him under contract with Spurs until the summer of 2023.
However, despite that new deal he might not be around to see it through, with a report from Football.London recently claiming that Villarreal are likely to take up a £13m option to make the move permanent.
And writing in an article for Football.London, Spurs insider Gold felt that letting him go could end up being a huge mistake on Tottenham’s part, noting that Foyth “could yet become a top player on the continent.”
His words were relayed to fans via his Twitter page, where there were many fans who agreed that letting him go might not look too good:
“He was the answer to our defensive midfield issue, it is such a shame cause he never got a fair shot”
Do you think Foyth has a future with Spurs?
Now all that’s left to do is wait. Wait to see if Villarreal make the move permanent, and then to see if it was the right move for them to make.
