Juan Foyth has signed a new contract at Tottenham before joining Villarreal on loan for the rest of the season.

Foyth, 22, moved to north London from Estudiantes three years ago and has gone on to make 32 appearances in all competitions for Spurs, although he has not featured since last December.

The Argentina international signed a 12-month extension that runs until 2023 before heading to Spain.

A Tottenham statement said: "Juan Foyth has signed a new contract with the club until 2023 and joined Spanish side Villarreal on loan for the remainder of the 2020-21 season."

Despite Spurs' hectic schedule, where they play eight games in 22 days, Foyth, Ryan Sessegnon, Paulo Gazzaniga, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Danny Rose have not been used at all.

Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho previously said he has too many players and expected to lose some before Monday night's deadline.
