    Poor for the second but promising overall. Really comfortable on the ball, should give him a taste of the speed and physicality of the league

    This guy is going to be the classiest motherfucking convertable premier league ball playing centerback once Toby and Jan are done for years to come. He'll be the perfect partner for Davinson Sanchez. Fuck John Stones he's got nothing on this guy.

    Looks a proper Rolls Royce player to me. Caught napping for their second goal but overall looked so comfortable on the ball and made some good tackles.

    Only 19, Davinson only 21.

    other teams will be thinking "why the f didn't we get these guys" in the future

    Good on the ball, looks tiny. Interesting to see whether he ends up at centre back.

    Jan and Toby say hi. It's more that he's pretty small for a centre back.

    Hilariously Wikipedia reckons he's 6' 3" which is obviously bollocks.

    WhoScored says 5' 10" which seems about right

    No he’s 6’ 1.5”. He’s not built like a CB (yet) but he’s certainly not short.

    He's definitely a good footballer. It remains to be seen whether or not he's a good defender.

    He's not short. He's at least as tall as Son and he's 6ft.

    This lad looks like a midfielder to me. Reminds me of Busquets.

    Where you getting that info? Because as I say, every single stats place has a different height for him, varying from 5' 10" to 6' 3".

    Thought he looked comfortably shorter than Toby, who's 6' 2". Maybe I'm just so used to our huge players, and his physique makes him look less imposing. He's the shortest centre back we have, for sure

    I was quite impressed with him, he was better in the air than I thought. Won quite a few battles against Carroll.

    Thought he handled himself pretty well last night.

    Wasn't great for the second, but neither was Toby who seemed a bit all over the place last night. Thought Foyth was our best CB last night.

    Google. The majority of places have him at 187 cm which is slightly over 6’ 1.5”, and tbh that sounds about right from seeing him. He’s certainly not 5’ 10”, which is probably a measurement from a couple of years ago given he’s 19. He’s also certainly not 6’ 3” - God knows where that one came from!

    Scroll down alongside sissoko tiny bit shorter than sissoko Who is 6 2’ .Id say 6 1.5’ is spot Once he fills out will be fine.Won quite a few challenges with Carroll,physicality won’t be an issue.Thry make them tough in Argentina especially CB.Actually reminds a lot of woodgate.

    Funny thing in that sissoko picture ,is his shoulders are about 6 inches below sissoko.The guy has a very very long neck lol.Infact he’s about a step behind sissoko ,so probably about same height.

    When i went to the training ground a few weeks ago I managed to get photos with all the players. Foyth happens to be standing right next to me and we're pretty identical in height and i'm 6' 1"
