Crystal Palace are currently in talks with Tottenham about the loan signing of right-back Kyle Walker-Peters, according to The Athletic.

The 22-year-old, who started the season as Spurs’ first-choice right-back, is expected to move to Selhurst Park for the remainder of the 2019/2020 campaign.

Walker-Peters started each of Tottenham’s opening three Premier League games this term, but since suffering a hamstring injury against Newcastle United back in August, the England Under-21 defender has found opportunities hard to come by and his only appearance under Jose Mourinho came in the dead rubber Champions League group match against Bayern Munich last month.

If Walker-Peters does complete his move to the south London outfit, it would leave Mourinho with just one senior right-back in the shape of Serge Aurier and possibly pave the way for 20-year-old Norwich City man Max Aaron’s, who has been a long-term target of the club and has already been touted in the January window as a potential signing.

Spurs also have Juan Foyth who can fill in at full-back, but the Argentine has played more games at right-back for his country than club so far this season.
