Tottenham have another unheralded gem in Kyle Walker-Peters

The young Tottenham Hotspur right-back looks set for a bright future in the game.

Tottenham Hotspur have so many exciting young players coming through the ranks right now that their fans would be forgiven for wondering who exactly to get the most excited about.

The usual suspects are talked about often – the likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers, Josh Onomah and Harry Winks – but there is another player who could become just as good if not better in the form of Kyle Walker-Peters.

The 18-year-old is predominantly a right-back although he can also operate on the opposite flank if required, and while it will be a tough task to usurp Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier in the short term, the teenager has all the attributes to ultimately succeed at White Hart Lane.

Walker-Peters is now a regular at under-21 level for Tottenham, playing every minute on 15 occasions this season and providing one assist in the process.

With 28 appearances in total at that level he is clearly going places and it may only be a matter of time before Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino calls him into the first-team squad.

The concern for the youngster is the competition for places in his preferred position, but all he can do is keep impressing for the second string and his chances will no doubt follow.
