Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth reportedly wants to join Europa League champions Villarreal permanently after his successful loan spell.

Villarreal are reportedly keen to land Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth on a permanent deal this summer.

The Argentinian defender has struggled for consistent starts in La Liga under Unai Emery, but he played a starring role in his side's triumphant Europa League campaign.

Foyth started 10 of the Yellow Submarine's 12 matches in Europe's second tier competition - playing 88 minutes in the final against Manchester United - and Villarreal supposedly want to keep him on the books beyond the summer.

According to AS, striking a permanent deal for Foyth is a priority for Villarreal, and the 23-year-old is also hopeful of remaining in La Liga with the Europa League champions.

The report adds that the Yellow Submarine want to negotiate a lower fee than the £12.8m option-to-buy clause in his loan deal, but Spurs are not willing to reduce the price, in spite of the fact that the South American does not appear to have a future at the club.

Foyth - who has flourished as a right-back for Villarreal this term - still has another two years left to run on his Tottenham deal, and he has scored one goal in 32 appearances for the North London club.
