Swansea City went into the January transfer window knowing that a new right-back was a necessity.
The days of Angel Rangel look over, while Kyle Naughton has struggled badly this season and was clearly in need of some serious competition.
But not a single new player has arrived at the Liberty Stadium this month, never mind a right-back. Deals for the likes of Andy Yiadom and Daniel Opare have grown cold while Ryan Fredericks looks set to stay and help out in Fulham’s promotion bid.
So with the Sun reporting that Kyle Walker-Peters is set to leave Tottenham Hotspur on loan this month and head to a relegation rival, surely this should spark Swansea to renew their interest in the highly-rated youngster.
But surely Swansea cannnot stand idly by and let Southampton pull of a deal that should help in their survival bid.
The Swans are understood to still be keen on the Tottenham academy graduate, who proved himself in the top flight when winning the Man of the Match award on his debut against Newcastle United on the opening day of the campaign.
Swansea are clearly in greater need of signing Walker-Peters and could also offer him a better chance of first-team football with Cedric Soares the undisputed first-choice at St Mary's.
So a short-term move to South Wales would suit all parties on paper.
