Tottenham Hotspur have officially confirmed the signing of Argentine centre-back Juan Foyth from Estudiantes, becoming the club's third buy of the summer after Colombian defender Davinson Sanchez and back-up goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

Foyth, an Argentina junior international, has signed a long-term contract until June 2022. The transfer fee has been reported to be around £8m.

At just 19 years of age, Foyth is seen as a top prospect for the future and Spurs have been linked with a move all summer.

Speaking to El Dia in Argentina earlier this week, Foyth explained the motives behind his move to Tottenham and the role manager Mauricio Pochettino played.

"It's a club that bets on the young and I think I'm going to have a chance to play," he said.

"I also spoke with Mauricio Pochettino and I liked what he said. It's what helped me decide that Tottenham was the right place to continue my career.

"He told me to go, train and, if I deserved it, that I would play. He also told me what the club was like and what his work ethic was."
