Tottenham have entered talks with Kyle Walker-Peters over a new contract, according to ESPN.
Walker-Peters made his Premier League debut on the opening day of the season and was named man of the match as Spurs won 2-0 at Newcastle United.
Kieran Trippier was injured at the time and Tottenham hadn’t yet signed Serge Aurier, so Walker-Peters was forced to step into the breach.
The right-back’s impressive performance contributed towards a new deal later that month – there are still two years remaining on his current contract.
But ESPN claims Spurs are keen to reward his development by offering him another improved deal.
England Under-21 international Walker-Peters has struggled for game time this season with Trippier and Aurier primarily competing for the right-back slot.
The 21-year-old has sometimes been used on the left in the absence of Danny Rose.
It’s unclear whether Walker-Peters will be given more chances next season – it’s certainly unlikely either Trippier or Aurier will leave the club this summer.
But due to his ability to play on either side of the back line, he is undeniably a useful player to have in the squad.
