Sergio Reguilon has made an excellent impact since arriving in North London from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

In the handful of appearances he has made for the Lilywhites, he has shown that he is an extremely competent defender, while also being a constant threat going forward down the left-hand side.

The left-back has repeatedly showcased his electric pace, while his ability to deliver quality balls into the box was evident in his assist for Harry Kane against West Ham on Sunday.

Reguilon has admitted that he is improving with each game he plays in the Premier League but insisted that it was the team’s results that were more important to him.

The left-back told Sky Sports: “I think I am improving with every game as I get more and more used to the competition. I want to keep growing, on a personal level as well as in footballing terms.

“The manager is giving me a lot of advice and I am gaining a lot of experience, but for me, honestly, the most important thing is that the team does well.

“If the team is doing well, it’s easier to perform.”

Over recent days, reports have suggested that Real Madrid could activate the clause to take Reguilon back as early as next summer (AS via Sport Witness).

The Spain international admitted that he owes a lot to the Spanish giants for making him the player he is but insisted that he is only focused on winning silverware at Tottenham.

He added: “It’s very difficult to go from the academy to the first team at Real Madrid. You have the best players in the world there and the level needed to get into the squad is very high.

“You have to believe in yourself, to know how to fight, and to get that little bit of luck that every player needs in his career.

“Real Madrid is the club where I was made, the club where I grew up, and I would be nothing without them.

“Leaving was a difficult step to take but it’s one you have to take at one point or another and, for me, I think it was the right time.

“It’s tough to leave your family and everything, but this league, for me, is the best in the world and I am very happy here. Now I just want to focus on trying to help this club win trophies.”

The 23-year-old also confidently asserted that the Lilywhites have the squad to challenge on all fronts this season, “I believe we have a squad capable of fighting for every competition.

“It’s true that we have a busy schedule this season and there are a lot of competitions, but we have the squad to be there. I try to take one game at a time, but we’ll begin to see where we can end up as the season progresses.”
