Revealed: 80% of Leeds fans want to sign Juan Foyth on loan in January

The majority of Leeds fans that answered our recent poll were keen for Marcelo Bielsa to make a January move for Tottenham’s young centre-back Juan Foyth.

AS Argentina recently reported that Bielsa was keen on a move for his 20-year-old compatriot in the winter transfer window, after being heavily linked with a loan deal in the summer.

Foyth though is yet to play a minute of football for Spurs this season and a loan move would surely do him well, especially in the physical Championship to allow him to properly adapt to English football after his move from Argentinian side Estudiantes in the summer of 2017.

Leeds sit second in the Championship after 15 games of Bielsa’s first season in charge, but his small squad may need additions in January, especially to the centre of defence, if they are to maintain that position and achieve promotion to the Premier League.

Check out the full results of our poll below, where 80 per cent of the Leeds fans wanted a move for Foyth.
