Tottenham have agreed a new deal with their highly rated defender Kyle Walker-Peters.
The agreement has been confirmed on the club’s official website and the new deal will keep the 21-year-old at the club until 2021.
Walker-Peters made his senior debut at the start of this season against Newcastle United and he ended up winning the man of the match award as well.
The 21-year-old fullback is a prodigious young talent and the Spurs fans will be delighted to see his stay extended.
Walker-Peters provided two assists in Tottenham’s crucial win over Leicester City this weekend. The win helped the Londoners seal a third-place finish.
The young defender has come through the ranks of Tottenham’s academy and he will be hoping to hold down a regular starting berth next season. The likes of Tripper and Aurier haven’t really impressed this season and the starting right back slot will be up for grabs.
Walker-Peters has represented England at Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 levels and he will be eyeing a senior debut next season.
Here is how the Tottenham fans reacted to the news of Walker-Peters’s extension.
The best Kyle Walker we’ve ever had.

The new contract is great news. For one thing it must mean that he’s been told he will get more chances in the first team. I think we can all agree that’s a good thing.
