Foyth broke onto to the scene in 2019 making his club debut against Barnsley in the EFL Cup. After the sale of Kieran Tripper to Atletico Madrid, he was expected to be the club’s starting right-back but injury in the early half of the season coupled with Pochettino’s departure pushed him down the pecking order for centre-backs.
‘The Special One’ Jose Mouninho preferred Dier, Sanchez, Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen across various competitions and the rise of academy product Japhet Tanganga sealed the fate for 22-year old Argentine International.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has quoted that there will be €15m buy option at the end of the loan spell should Villarreal choose to activate it.
