Report: Tottenham 'open talks' with Swansea City over £4m Kyle Naughton deal

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Reports breaking today suggest that Tottenham are in talks with Swansea City over a deal to send Kyle Naughton to South Wales.

According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham have opened talks with Swansea City over a £4m deal for right back Kyle Naughton.

The Spurs right back, 26, is out of favour under manager Mauricio Pochettino, with his former Sheffield United team mate Kyle Walker becoming the first choice option on the right side of the defence at White Hart Lane.

The recent arrival of United States international DeAndre Yedlin has again cast doubts over the future of Naughton, and a January exit always seemed inevitable.

Recent reports have linked Naughton with a move to Swansea, though Leicester City also joined the race for his signature this week.

However, the Daily Mirror believe that Swansea have opened talks with Tottenham over a £4m to take Naughton to the Liberty Stadium, with respective chairmen Huw Jenkins and Daniel Levy reportedly trying to agree a deal today.

The Swans have received a cash windfall with the £28m sale of star striker Wilfried Bony to Manchester City today, and manager Garry Monk looks ready to spend some of it on a new right back.

Long-serving Angel Rangel is now 32 and could certainly be upgraded upon, so the possibility of playing first team football should be a lure for Naughton, who appears to be edging ever closer to the Tottenham exit door.
