According to a report by Football Insider, Southampton are expecting to hold talks with Tottenham over a permanent deal for Kyle Walker-Peters in the summer.

After starting the first three Premier League games of the season in North London, the defender found future opportunities hard to come by.

The 22-year-old rarely featured following the arrival of Jose Mourinho in November and it did not come as much of a surprise when he joined Southampton in January on loan for the remainder of the season.

Football Insider have claimed that the Saints wanted to sign the right-back permanently in January but failed to come to reach agreement with Tottenham over the price.

It is claimed that they were unwilling to pay Tottenham’s £15 million valuation for the England Under-21 international.

However, it is suggested that Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has been impressed with what he has seen of Walker-Peters during his time on the south coast and is keen to tie up a permanent deal for the player who is said to be surplus to requirements at Spur

It is clear at this point that Walker-Peters isn’t going to break into the Spurs side. A move to Southampton will suit the young defender given the possession-based, offensive style they play. At 22 years of age, he needs to be playing regularly and so I suspect the club will let him go in the summer.
