Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa tried signing Tottenham defender according to former physical coach Gabriel Macaya.
Bielsa has been linked with bringing Spurs defender and compatriot Foyth to Leeds in the past, including during the January transfer window. Now his former physical coach Gabriel Macaya has revealed his ex-boss has already tried to sign Foyth in the past - when in charge at Ligue 1 side Lille.
"Although I didn’t work with Foyth, I did have to correlate with the professionals who had him in Estudiantes," Macaya told Argentine outlet Infocielo, as quoted by Sports Witness.
"I had to follow him when he played at Pincha, and he was very close to coming to France with us."
