Kyle Walker-Peters will remain with Southampton until the end of the season instead of returning back to Spurs, The Daily Echo has revealed.
Walker-Peters hardly featured since Jose Mourinho arrived at Tottenham and his loan move to the Saints in January did not come as much of a surprise.
However, the right-back only played one game for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side before the season was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic (transfermarkt.com).
Southampton are said to be interested in signing the defender on a permanent basis this summer (Sky Sports), with reports suggesting that Spurs could use the 23-year-old as a makeweight in the deal to land Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (Football Insider).
With the Premier League provisionally set to restart date on Wednesday 17 June (Daily Mail), Southampton are said to be keen on keeping the defender in the South Coast until the end of the season.
The Daily Echo suggests that Southampton are likely to come to an agreement with the Lilywhites for the defender to stay on the south coast for the remainder of the campaign.

It would not make sense for us to recall either Kyle Walker-Peters or Danny Rose. It is clear that both of them are in the shop window at the moment and the price we will get for them in the summer could depend on how well they play until the end of the season.
