Josh Onomah praises Tottenham under-21 teammate Kyle Walker-Peters

Tottenham Hotspur Stands

Josh Onomah has been speaking about his fellow Tottenham Hotspur under-21 player Kyle Walker-Peters.

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Josh Onomah has been speaking to the club’s official website following Spurs’ under-21 match against their Leicester City counterparts on Monday.

The two sides drew 0-0 with the likes of Onomah, Harry Winks and Emmanuel Sonupe unable to break the deadlock with the latter coming close only to see his effort strike the crossbar.

But after the match, Onomah praised another Tottenham youngster – young full-back Kyle Walker-Peters.

Onomah has recently experienced first-team action for Tottenham, playing 14 minutes of the club’s FA Cup third round replay against Burnley.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have subsequently been eliminated from the competition, meaning Onomah is likely to spend most of his time back in under-21 action for the rest of the campaign, but he turned the spotlight on Walker-Peters after their latest outing.

“I thought Kyle did very well,” he said. “We’ve both just played in the FA Youth Cup and he played well there as well.

“He’s good on the ball and hopefully he’ll build on his performance today in the future.”

The 17-year-old can also operate as a midfielder and that versatility should stand him in good stead in his career, especially when you consider the amount (and quality) of players he may need to usurp if he wants a regular starting spot at right-back at White Hart Lane one day.
