Pochettino keen to keep Walker-Peters at Spurs

Tottenham are reportedly refusing to part with Kyle Walker-Peters because of their lack of options at right-back.

The Sun say Crystal Palace are among clubs keen to take the 22-year-old on loan for the coming season.

Brighton and German side RB Leipzig are also said to be interested in Walker-Peters, who has impressed when given a chance in the Spurs side.

The Sun say all three clubs have made approaches but that boss Mauricio Pochettino wants Walker-Peters to compete for a first-team place following the recent departure of Kieran Trippier.

England international Trippier has agreed a move to Spanish side Atletico Madrid and it appears that Spurs are hoping young Walker-Peters will take the opportunity to establish himself in north London.

Juan Foyth is an option at right-back despite being primarily a central defender, but he is suspended for the start of the season.

Walker-Peters would certainly be a timely addition for Palace, who are looking for a replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka following his recent big-money move to Manchester United.

Nathaniel Clyne was linked with a return to Palace from Liverpool but any chance of a deal has now been scuppered by him suffering a long-term knee injury during pre-season.
