Kyle Walker-Peters left Tottenham for Southampton
Kyle Walker-Peters has posted an emotional message on social media after sealing his exit from boyhood club Tottenham Hotspur.
The 23-year-old academy ace has left the club to join Premier League rivals Southampton, after having spent the second half of the 2019/20 campaign on loan at the St. Mary’s.
Having completed the transfer, Walker-Peters took to social media to thank Tottenham with an emotional message.
“13 years! It’s been a dream come true to play for my local club from 10 years old through to the first team! Thank you to all the staff and the fans @spursofficial who have supported me throughout the years, wishing you all the best for the future!”
Tottenham fans flocked to Twitter to react to Walker-Peters’ message. And a number of the supporters felt that the club had made a mistake by offloading the former England youth international. Here are some of the reactions from the fans to KWP’s exit and his message to the club.
This is a huge mistake by the club 😒

All the best and may you and your family prosper 🙏

Really think this a mistake by the club to let you go so hope you go and prove them wrong! Except for when you play us, obviously, maybe take the weekend off then!

Keep your head & stay focused KWP lad
I know we will regret selling you
Now you’ll get plenty of game time you will go forward & become a top RB/RWB imo
I wish you every success & I hope to see you back at the Lane in the coming years
Take Care & Thank You Yiddo
