Kyle Walker-Peters to replace Kyle Walker?

Tom Smith by Tom Smith @besoccer_com - 0 968

The 20-year-old defender is coming through the Spurs ranks and is ready to challenge Kieran Trippier for the vacant right-back spot.

Yes, you read that right. Tottenham have highly rated youth prospect Kyle Walker-Peters ready to break through to the first team squad.

Walker-Peters is a full-back usually deployed on the right, but is more than capable of playing on the left. He is an intelligent, attacking full back with dribbling being one of his stand out attributes.

He was part of Tottenham's 2015 FA Youth Cup squad that reached the semi-finals and played a major role in England Under 20's successful World Cup campaign in South Korea this summer.

Earlier this year, Spurs rewarded the young defender with a new contract, keeping him at the club until 2019.

Walker-Peters has been an unused substitute on occasion for Spurs and is now training with Pochettino's senior squad. The young full-back will provide cover for Kieran Trippier but Tottenham fans can expect to see his face during the new Premier League season.
