Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kyle Walker-Peters could be set for a loan move across London.

The Athletic report that the 22-year-old is close to agreeing a spell at Crystal Palace.

Walker-Peters started the first three Premier League matches of the season under Mauricio Pochettino before suffering a hamstring injury in the loss to Newcastle United.

His only other appearances have come in the Carabao Cup defeat at Colchester United and a difficult evening at the Allianz Arena in the 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich (transfermarkt).

Jose Mourinho’s arrival in North London as head coach has seen the Portuguese select Serge Aurier as his first choice right-back.

The Ivorian has still shown glimpses of unpredictability with some performances, with Walker-Peters not even making the bench for the last seven Premier League outings. 

Palace have been short of options at right-back since the sale of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United in the summer while Joel Ward has been struggling with injury (Standard).

Opinion

When you consider that Walker-Peters is a year older than Trent Alexander-Arnold, he needs to get his career back on track and play regular first team football.

He appears to be surplus to requirements at present and a spell at Palace is in the best interests of everyone.
