Speculation has surfaced suggesting that Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa could be interested in taking Tottenham Hotspur youngster Juan Foyth out on a loan spell this season.

Bielsa is going into his first full campaign in England at Elland Road and Leeds have made a bright start to the Championship campaign of 2018/19, only losing their winning streak in midweek as they drew 2-2 with Swansea City on Tuesday evening.

There are no real bones on the report from the Birmingham Mail as they cover it on their transfer ticker, but I’m assuming it’s a generic ticker used by all Trinity Mirror outlets as I fail to see why they’d be covering Leeds or Spurs content.

Despite the lack of concrete information in their suggestion, it’s not beyond the realms of possibility as you don’t have to look far to see why Leeds would want defensive cover – their last game saw two fullbacks in the heart of defence as Liam Cooper dropped out with injury – and Mauricio Pochettino and Bielsa have well-known links, so it sort of writes itself on that front.

Should the 20-year-old make the move before the end of the month, it seems plenty would be on board with it.

Despite coming from nowhere, I could certainly see the sense in this one from a number of angles if it was to come off. Bielsa has been quoted about not being concerned about strengthening their defensive ranks but Foyth should be a fantastic addition for them.

  • The main concern I have over Foyth is simply whether he’s strong enough. A season in the championship might be what’s required to toughen him up. Really though that should have happened last year, while CCV was getting game time Foyth wasn’t.
