Kyle Walker-Peters could make his loan at Southampton permanent in the summer
According to Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker-Peters could make his loan at Southampton a permanent deal in the summer.
Spurs are willing to offload the player for the right price with Saints looking to bolster their defensive options. Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is thought to be keen on making Walker-Peters deal permanent (h/t Sky Sports).
The starlet hadn’t been able to break into the starting XI for Spurs in spite of Serge Aurier’s inconsistency.
Walker-Peters just made one appearance for Tottenham under Jose Mourinho. That solitary outing came in the away loss to Bayern in the final group stage clash in the UEFA Champions League. With our progression all but assured, the Portuguese manager put out a team filled with reserve players.
The 23-year-old’s contract at Tottenham expires in 2023. With his future at the club looking suspect it will be in everyone’s interest to cash on for him at the earliest opportunity.
Tottenham have been uncharacteristically shambolic in defencee and a rebuild is on the cards. With right-backs such as Max Aarons and Nordi Mukiele linked, it will be in everyone’s interests if Walker-Peters is moved along.
