Tottenham Hotspur have sold Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid this summer following a poor showing from the England international last season.

As of this moment, Tottenham haven’t signed a new right-back, leaving them with Serge Aurier, Juan Foyt,h and Kyle Walker-Peters who can all play in the position.

However, now a report in Football Insider suggests that Southampton have made a late move to sign Walker-Peters on loan for the season. The 22-year-old defender is said to be the Saints’ top target before deadline day.

The report suggested that Southampton have been encouraged to bid for Walker-Peters, with Tottenham letting them know that he is available to be loaned out. It is suggested that Pochettino has decided to loan the youngster out if Spurs can get in a new right-back before the transfer window shuts at 5 pm tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Serge Aurier has also been linked with a move back to PSG (Football Insider) while Tottenham are said to be considering making a bid for OGC Nice right back Youcef Atal (DZ Football).

Spurs Web Opinion

This deal looks extremely unlikely as Walker-Peters is currently the only fully fit right back at the club following Foyth’s injury during preseason. However, a season of playing regular Premier League football will certainly do Walker-Peters a world of good and might fast forward his development.

  1. Complete and utter drivel! Right now Walker-Peters is the only fit RB at the club and Spurs are going to loan him out on deadline day? Categorically they are NOT and furthermore he will be starting at RB on Saturday against Villa.
