Tottenham defender signs new long-term deal

Young Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters has signed a new four and a half year deal with the club.

The England under-21 international only penned a new deal as recently as May; however, club and player have now negotiated a revised contract that will keep him at the club until June 2023, reports The Evening Standard.

Walker-Peters joined the Tottenham academy in 2013, and has gone on to make 11 senior appearances for the team, scoring once in an FA Cup win over Rochdale earlier this year.

He has had to bide his time, finding himself behind both Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier in the pecking order, but came on as a substitute against Leicester City in the League on Saturday, and may be in line for more appearances with injury doubts over the pair of them just now.

Walker-Peters is the latest player to commit his long-term future to Spurs, and follows the like of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son Heung-min in agreeing new deals with the club.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
