Tottenham Hotspur want a large loan fee and assurances over game-time before they allow Kyle Walker-Peters to leave this month, according to a report from The Sun on Sunday (12/1; page 63).
Walker-Peters looks to be heading out of Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this month. The 22-year-old has barely featured this season, and has only made one appearance under Jose Mourinho.
The Sun on Sunday reports that both Brighton and Crystal Palace want Walker-Peters for the rest of the season. But Daniel Levy is not prepared to let him leave on the cheap.
The Sun on Sunday (12/1; page 63) reports that Tottenham will let him leave for a significant loan fee. They also want assurances over how much he will play.
The report notes that Levy wants those assurances to ensure that his value remains high in case Spurs decide to sell the academy graduate this summer.
TBR View – Spurs exit looks to be best for all parties
It is becoming more and more difficult to envisage Walker-Peters making the grade at Tottenham. His inability to break into the side on a regular basis under both Mauricio Pochettino and now Mourinho is arguably telling.
It would therefore, be a mistake to price him out of a move. It is not clear what Levy wants for the right-back, but it would surely be better to let him leave for a small fee than hold onto him because his admirers would not meet his asking price.
Walker-Peters need a loan move. It may prove his last throw of the dice as he looks to prove himself at Spurs. And if that does not work, it may convince another side to make a permanent bid in the summer.
It makes a lot of sense to wait for assurances over how much he will play. But the most important thing for all parties has surely got to be that Walker-Peters does secure a loan move this month.
