Tottenham Hotspur could consider bringing back Kyle Walker-Peters to North London.

Kyle Walker-Peters set to stay at Southampton till the end of the season

As reported by the Daily Echo, Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters is set to extend his loan spell at fellow Premier League outfit Southampton till the end of the season, whenever that may be.

The 23-year-old Walker-Peters left Tottenham in January, signing for Southampton on loan. The temporary spell was supposed to expire at the end of this month. However, FIFA allowed for players with loan contracts and expiring contracts to extend their deals until the end of the season, as football was suspended due to the pandemic.

And, as per the aforementioned report, Southampton have reached an agreement with Spurs over the extension of Walker-Peters’ loan spell until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old Walker-Peters is a product of the Tottenham academy. Having made his first-team debut for our club back in 2017, he has made 24 appearances so far, scoring one goal and setting up five more.

He had made just five senior appearances in the 2019/20 campaign. Given the lack of opportunities upon Jose Mourinho’s arrival in November last year, the club made the right call to send him out on loan.

However, the youngster hardly got a chance to make an impression at Southampton before the season was suspended.

Walker-Peters wasn’t 100 per cent fit when he joined the South Coast club and had to wait till mid February to make his debut for the club. He lasted for 73 minutes in the Premier League clash against Burnley, before being subbed off. Soon after the campaign was halted.

The Premier League is set to return next month.And with Walker-Peters also set to extend his stay at the club, hopefully the Englishman gets ample opportunities to impress Mourinho and earn a place for himself in his plans next season.
