Spurs defender signs contract extension

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Kyle Walker-Peters has signed a new five-year deal at the club.

The right back made his debut during last season’s Premier League opener at Newcastle United, where he was named as the man of the match.

Since that day, he has only made a further 10 senior appearances in a Spurs shirt, with the most recent coming as a late substitute in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Walker-Peters currently finds himself behind Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier in the pecking order on the right side of Mauricio Pochettino’s defence, which has significantly contributed to his lack of game time.

The 21-year-old is in line to face Barcelona tomorrow night due to a groin problem for Trippier, while Aurier did not play the full 90 minutes at Leicester after hobbling off with what looked to be an injury.

If the lack of game time continues, a loan spell would probably be in the best interests of the player.

A Tweet on the Official Spurs account confirmed the news.
