Leeds United are looking at alternative central defensive options to Juan Foyth ahead of the summer transfer window, a report from The Athletic has claimed.

It had recently been reported that Leeds were interested in a move for the Tottenham defender, who could be set to leave the North London club at the end of the season after a lack of first-team opportunities, although it appears as though Elland Road may not be his next destination.

According to the latest reports, Leeds have watched Foyth closely in recent months, but are not thought to be particularly keen on the Argentine.

As a result, it is thought that the Whites are now exploring other potential options to strengthen their ranks at the back.

Since joining Tottenham from Estudiantes in 2017, Foyth has made just 32 appearances in all competitions for Spurs, struggling to make an impact under the management of either Mauricio Pochettino or Jose Mourinho.

Consequentially, you can kind of understand why Leeds may be hesitant to make a move for the 22-year-old, given his relative lack of experience in the Premier League, something that may be a risk for the Whites to rely on next season, if they do indeed win promotion during the current campaign.

But with Ben White’s loan from Brighton set to expire when this season comes to an end, there can be no doubt Leeds need to add to their central defensive options when the window reopens, even if not with Foyth, and it will be interesting to see which other targets they are linked with over the next few months.
