Juan Foyth has been added to Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League squad ahead of the knockout stages.

Skysports add that there is still no place for Dutch striker Vincent Janssen, who is behind Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Fernando Llorente in the pecking order.

UEFA only allow clubs to register 17 non-locally trained players for each phase of the competition, meaning Foyth was left out of the group stage quota.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino called the decision to leave the 21-year-old out a ‘mistake’, so will presumably be delighted to be able to pick the Argentinian in the coming weeks.

He takes the place of Belgian international Moussa Dembele, who joined Chinese club Guangzhou R&F last month.

Foyth has made six appearances at centre-back in the Premier League this season, contributing one goal in the process.

He moved to North London from Estudiantes in an £8m deal in the summer of 2017, signing a five-year contract.

As for Janssen, his future at the club looks ever more uncertain after this omission and a collapsed transfer towards the end of the January transfer window.

He cost the club £17m two and a half years ago and has suffered a number of injuries in England, with his contract running out next summer.

Will Foyth feature in the two-legged clash with Dortmund?
