Spurs defender Juan Foyth will miss the start of the season after suffering a thigh muscle injury during a pre-season friendly with Brentford on Saturday.

The 20-year-old Argentinian, who joined the Londoners for a reported £8m last summer, wasn't expected to be a starter at the beginning of the campaign anyway, yet there are hopes of him stepping up if Spurs sell Toby Alderweireld this summer.

"Juan Foyth suffered a thigh muscle injury during Saturday’s friendly against Brentford," the club announced on Twitter.


"As a result, he will miss the start of the season as he undergoes his rehabilitation at Hotspur Way."

Mauricio Pochettino's side will face Italian side AS Roma in another pre-season fixture on Wednesday and will then play Barcelona on Saturday.

They will round off pre-season affairs with a final match against AC Milan on Tuesday before heading into preparations for their first match of the Premier League campaign, which will be against Newcastle.
