“Improving every game” – Former Tottenham starlet admits it was the right decision to quit North London

Kyle Walker-Peters has no regrets on leaving Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur academy graduate Kyle Walker-Peters is enjoying a new lease of time at Southampton.

The 23-year-old, who joined the Saints on loan last January, made the deal permanent in the summer. He has since established himself as an important part of Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.

Walker-Peters has been an ever-present for Southampton in the Premier League this season. He has played every single minute of their 11 games as they sit pretty in fourth, just four points off the top of the table.

Not that Spurs would complain, as we sit pretty at the top. A major player who has played his part in our success is Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg who joined from Southampton this summer.

While it is easy to quantify the impact the midfielder has had, Walker-Peters is scripting his own success story at St. Mary’s. According to Hampshire Live, the defender believes leaving Spurs for the Saints was the best decision for him.

“I feel really happy with the decision I have made.”

Playing to his strengths

Hasenhuttl is a tough taskmaster who demands a high-pressing, intense playing style from his squad. It is a testament to Walker-Peters’ ability that he has managed to fit right in. He believes the style suits him to a tee. Given his performances so far, it is hard to argue.

“I am in a team where it really compliments me, so for that reason I am improving every game and I feel like I am confident every game and hopefully that continues.”

With both Matt Doherty and Serge Aurier at Spurs, Walker-Peters’ route to the first-team was always going to be difficult. Taking the decision to move elsewhere has proven productive for all parties.

Even if not with us, it is always good to see an academy graduate make a name for himself in the game. Walker-Peters is on his way to establishing himself as a Premier League mainstay and we could not be happier.
