‘Delighted’, ‘can’t wait’: Some fans erupt after ‘superb’ player bought from Spurs, sends message

Following his permanent move from Tottenham Hotspur to Southampton, Kyle Walker-Peters has taken to Twitter with a message for his new club’s fanbase.

On Tuesday, Walker-Peters departed Spurs permanently, linking up with the Saints on a five-year deal for a fee reported by the Daily Echo to be in the region of £12million.

The 23-year-old came through the ranks at Tottenham but made just 24 appearances for the Spurs senior team since his impressive debut against Newcastle in August 2017 (Transfermarkt).

Walker-Peters made five appearances last season for Tottenham (Transfermarkt) and just one since Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino as head coach at Spurs, despite the club’s lack of options at right-back.

The defender swapped London to Southampton on loan back in January and, following a slow start at St Mary’s, kicked on after the English football restart and became a regular in Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.

“Absolutely delighted to join Southampton permanently, can’t wait to pick up where we left off, we march on,” Walker-Peters wrote on Twitter.

Some Saints fans responded to his message, looking forward to see what the future brings for both player and club:
