Tottenham’s Kyle Walker-Peters is expected to stay at Southampton for the remainder of the season, regardless of when the Premier League campaign finishes, according to the Daily Echo.
The 23-year-old, who joined the St Mary’s outfit on loan until the end of the season in January, but the Coronavirus pandemic caused a halt to all football in March, meaning his future with the Saints was in doubt.
However, the report in the Daily Echo has revealed that the two clubs have come to an agreement to let the former England U21 right-back stay on the South Coast until the current campaign draws to a close.
Prior to the pause of the Premier League, Walker-Peters had featured just one for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s, but his debut came to a premature end after he limped off midway through the second-half and would miss the Saints’ next three matches.
But in an interview with talkSport on Thursday morning, he confirmed that he had returned to training with the rest of his Southampton teammates this week.
“It’s the first week and my legs are hanging off, DOMS I have now are like pre-season,” the defender admitted.
