Tottenham Hotspur appear to have completed one of the bargain signings of the season in Juan Foyth, even though his arrival has hardly attracted any attention.

Foyth has only been used sparingly by Mauricio Pochettino this season, but it is clear to see that the Argentine is a huge talent.

The 20-year-old still needs to develop physically, but his ability in possession has shone through whenever he has been on the pitch.

In modern football, there are few players as value as ball-playing centre-backs, and Foyth has all the credentials to become a key player for Spurs in the future.

Tottenham only paid £10 million to sign Foyth, as valued by the London Evening Standard, and that looks to be an absolute bargain.

Foyth stood out last night, as Tottenham beat Newport County 2-0 in the FA Cup, and although he is unlikely to be a regular starter in the imminent future, his potential is clear for all to see.

And the addition of Foyth deserves a lot more credit than it has received, as if the youngster fulfils his potential, then he could become a superstar at Spurs over the years ahead.
