Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly rejected loan bids from two Premier League sides for Kyle Walker-Peters.

A number of Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports from The Sun towards the end of last week suggesting that Spurs have rejected loan bids for Kyle Walker-Peters from a number of sides this summer.

With Kieran Trippier sold, Juan Foyth suspended and Serge Aurier returning to pre-season late due to the Africa Cup of Nations, Walker-Peters looks set to go into the new season as Mauricio Pochettino's first-choice option at right-back.

 

So it will come as little surprise that Spurs appear to have shown no interest in letting the academy graduate leave this summer. The Sun reports that Brighton and Crystal Palace both made contact about a potential season-long loan, while RB Leipzig were also interested.

However, Tottenham have reportedly decided that they do not want to let the 22-year-old leave during this window. And the news has prompted an interesting response from some of the Spurs fans on social media.

While Pochettino does not have a host of options in his position, plenty appear to think that Walker-Peters would benefit more from a season-long loan at another Premier League club or in Germany where so many young players have developed in recent years.

Some obviously want Walker-Peters to stay put, but it appears that many feel that an ideal situation would be for Spurs to sign a marquee replacement for Trippier and let the youngster leave for a year to potentially prove that he is ready to become a regular starter at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. There are also those who believe that he should actually be sold permanently.
