Tottenham Hotspur are already short of right-backs at the club right now, with just Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters in the senior squad.

This came after Daniel Levy took the decision to sell Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid back in the summer window without signing a direct replacement.

Walker-Peters started the first three matches of the season under Mauricio Pochettino, but an injury halted his progress in the first-team.

The 22-year-old has been unable to break back in for any meaningful game time since that injury, under both Poch and Jose Mourinho.

It now seems as if the academy graduate will be given the chance to impress on loan at another club for the rest of the season, as Crystal Palace are apparently keen (Daily Mail).

Roy Hodgson, manager of Palace, has now confirmed that he is hopeful his club can get the loan deal done and he believes they would benefit from Walker-Peters’ services.

He said (Football London): “I know the club is working hard and I am optimistic and hopeful that we will be able to bring Kyle in. I think he is a very talented player and I think we would benefit from his services.”
