‘What a shame if true’ – Some Spurs fans disappointed to hear about potential departure

Some Spurs fans have reacted disapprovingly to news that the club might be looking to sell Kyle Walker-Peters in the January transfer window.

The 22-year-old, who signed for the club’s academy back in 2013 as a 15-year-old, has not had much game time this campaign, having not made a Premier League appearance since August (transfermarkt).

Walker-Peters has never managed to get a consistent run in the side and stake a claim for the right-back slot.

Since Mourinho’s arrival, the right-back has only featured in the 3-1 defeat away to Bayern Munich and his performance in the game left a lot to be desired.

The Sun report that Brighton are keen on signing Walker-Peters on a permanent deal next month and that Spurs are open to letting him go.

Some Spurs fans were disappointed to hear the news and wished that the youngster would be loaned out instead. However, others admitted that it was perhaps time for the full back to move on in search of regular game time.

While Walker-Peters hasn’t had enough opportunities for us to judge him fairly, it is clear that there are question marks over his defending. The youngster has got overrun on multiple occasions and I don’t quite see Mourinho trusting him enough to give him opportunities. At 22 years of age, perhaps it is time for him to move on for the sake of his career.
