DONE DEAL: Villarreal sign permanently Tottenham defender Juan Foyth

Villarreal have completed the signing of Tottenham defender Juan Foyth.

Foyth has completed a £13million permanent transfer to Villarreal from Tottenham.

The Argentine initially joined the Spanish side on a season-long loan last summer after being frozen out by former Spurs manager Jose Mourinho.

Foyth, 23, impressed for the Yellow Submarine - making 32 appearances for Unai Emery's side.

His loan spell culminated in playing 88 minutes of Villarreal's Europa League final win over Manchester United.

A £13m option to buy clause was inserted into the initial loan deal.

And Villarreal saw enough quality to trigger it.
