Kyle  Walker-Peters in line for new Tottenham deal

Walker-Peters close to new Spurs deal

Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to offer right-back Kyle Walker-Peters with a new contract following his impressive Premier League debut against Newcastle United last weekend.

The 20-year-old joined up with the Spurs' senior squad in pre-season, and he has since left a huge impression on manager Mauricio Pochettino.

In the absence of injured Kieran Trippier, Walker-Peters put in a man of the match performance in the 2-0 win over the Magpies last weekend, and Spurs are now eager to tie him up on a fresh deal.

Walker-Peters only inked a fresh two-year contract with Spurs in February 2017, but according to The Sun, Pochettino wants the youngster signed for the long-term.

The right-back has also made his mark with the England youth setup after having played a key role in the Under-20s World Cup triumph earlier this summer.

Spurs were initially on the hunt for a right-sided defender following Kyle Walker's departure but it appears that Pochettino has been convinced by the progress of the club's graduate.
