Tottenham Hotspur youngster Kyle Walker-Peters insists that he is ready to fill in for Danny Rose if the left-back is set for a spell on the sidelines.
Rose had to pull out of international duty with England for the matches against Croatia and Spain after picking up a groin injury. It remains to be seen whether the injury will cause him to miss any game time for Tottenham.
Walker-Peters came to prominence last season when he put in a Man of the Match display on his debut for the club in the win against Newcastle United at St James’ Park.
He has had limited options since after finding himself behind both Rose and Ben Davies in the pecking order under Mauricio Pochettino, but was rewarded with a new contract extension in the summer.
The 21-year-old told Sky Sports: “Hopefully it’s not too bad for Dan. If the manager at Tottenham needs me to play on the left then I’m ready to do a good job.
“The gaffer knows what he’s doing. I have faith in what he has planned for me and when he gives me my opportunities I have to continue to take them.
“He spoke to me at the beginning of the season which is good. He makes it quite clear that if you want to go and have a word with him, feel free to and question him.”
