Kyle Walker-Peters could still turn his loan deal at Southampton into a permanent switch when the transfer market reopens in the summer, Sky Sports have revealed.
Walker-Peters started the first three Premier League matches of the campaign under Mauricio Pochettino but did not appear again for Spurs in the top flight after hobbling off with a hamstring injury in the 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle.
Jose Mourinho’s arrival did not see the academy graduate break back into the starting eleven and it hardly came as much of surprise when the defender was loaned out to Southampton in January.
However, with the Premier League being suspended due to the spread of the coronavirus, the defender has only managed to make one appearance for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side (transfermarkt).
Sky Sports reveal that despite not having much game time at the St. Mary’s, the Saints are still keen on buying the 23-year-old in the summer with Tottenham said to be prepared to allow the academy graduate leave North London.
It is claimed that no purchase option or obligation was included in his loan deal with both clubs still to agree to terms over a permanent transfer.
