Report: Pochettino’s right-back problem may be solved with positive news on Foyth

Tottenham Hotspur and Mauricio Pochettino have been undergoing a sort of experiment at right-back so far this season in the Premier League.

The club sold their starting right-back from last year, Kieran Trippier, to Atletico Madrid and chose not to sign a replacement in the transfer window.

Pochettino was then forced to dip into his existing squad to find a new regular for the right full-back spot. Serge Aurier, the most experienced in that position at the club, may have jumped out as an obvious choice, but he has yet to feature this summer.

Young Kyle Walker-Peters was given the nod for the first three games of the Prem season, but he looked far from natural or comfortable.

After KWP picked up an injury, Davinson Sanchez stepped in, but he had a torrid game in the North London Derby.

Football London now report that Juan Foyth may be approaching a return to training this month following his spell out with an injury. The Argentine attended the launch of the new third kit on Tuesday evening.

With the current state of affairs at right-back, surely Foyth would walk into the starting spot?
