Report: Kyle Naughton tipped to leave Spurs in January with three Premier League clubs interested

Tottenham WHL

Leicester City, Swansea, City and Crystal Palace are all interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Naughton.

Kyle Naughton is heading towards the exit door at White Hart Lane, according to a report in the London Evening Standard

The full-back has attracted the interests of Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Swansea City ahead of the January transfer window and Tottenham Hotspur will reportedly not stand in his way if any of the Premier League trio make an acceptable offer. 

Naughton has fallen out of favour at the North London club after a series of insipid performances and the return of Kyle Walker from injury alongside the possible arrival of DeAndre Yedlin is set to leave him along way down the pecking order for a starting place in Mauricio Pochettino's team. 

The former Sheffield United man never developed into the player that Spurs were hoping for when they bought him as a promising youngster. 

Naughton is now 26-years-old and the feeling that he could still develop into a first-team regular has gone. 

It means that Pochettino is keen to offload the rapid defender, as he plots a hectic January transfer window which should see a number of departures and arrivals at White Hart Lane. 

Naughton is one of a number of players who are set to leave Tottenham, with Pochettino panning a clear out of the fringe players in his squad. 

Swansea were interested in signing the full-back in the summer, but their attempts proved unsuccessful then.

However, Gary Monk is apparently confident of getting a deal over the line in the new-year and this persistent desire to sign the full-back may put them at the head of the queue for his signature.
