Juan Foyth is close to sealing his transfer to Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs have agreed a fee with Estuadiantes to sign the centre-back, but Argentine newspaper El Dia had reported he was expected to fly to London earlier this week.

Now Diario Hoy provides an update, stating Foyth will fly out this weekend.

Foyth's representatives explained that yesterday he was just waiting to find out whether he will travel on either Saturday or Sunday.

The delay has come about because Foyth plans to travel to London from Argentina with his 'whole family', rather than simply alone or with an agent.

Foyth is just 20 and moving across the world is clearly a big upheaval for the youngster.

If bringing his family over, even just temporarily, helps him settle in North London then it is the wise move in allowing him to do so.

Foyth is an Argentina under-20 international and was swayed into joining Spurs over Paris Saint-Germain after being convinced by compatriot Mauricio Pochettino.

The Times also report Foyth will travel for his medical this weekend and will finalise personal terms.
