Kyle Walker-Peters has admitted that he is pleased with his decision to swap Tottenham Hotspur for Southampton during the summer transfer window.
The Spurs academy graduate was highly rated while coming through the ranks at the North London club but he could not get a consistent run of games in the first-team despite putting in a few impressive performances.
He was loaned out to St Mary’s for the second half of last season and the defender did enough to convince the Saints to pay £12m to snap him up in the summer.
It has certainly proven to be money well spent as Walker-Peters has come into his own at the start of this season, becoming a key contributor to the impressive start Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have made.
When asked whether it has been a good few months for him on a personal level, the right-back told Hampshire Live: “Yeah definitely.
“I think you can see with how well we are doing as a team, we are all really enjoying it and because it has gone so well, I feel really happy with the decision I have made.”
He also admitted that Hasenhuttl’s style of play is a perfect fit for the attributes he possesses.
When asked whether the Saints boss was a key figure in him deciding to make the switch to the South Coast, the 24-year-old said: “Massively. The way he wants us to play is very intense, high energy and that suits me really well.
“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.”
