Graham Roberts names key Tottenham player that will leave after Simon Jordan claims
By Amir Mir
Graham Roberts believes Kyle Walker is the only player in the Tottenham team that Mauricio Pochettino will allow to leave.
Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan previously claimed that a number of Spurs players “want out” from the club.
Roberts hit back at Jordan’s claims and insisted that the recently demoted Walker is the only one who could leave through the exit door in the summer.
In recent weeks, Walker has found himself on the bench, with Pochettino denying that he is not selecting one of his key defenders for “big games”.
Club legend Roberts responded to Jordan’s claims and believes others are “stirring” it up for the highly-rated Tottenham team.

“People just stirring it up,” Roberts wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Walker is the only one who our manager will allow to leave.”

For the majority of the campaign, Walker was a regular feature in the Tottenham side, keeping Kieran Trippier on the bench.
However, in recent weeks Pochettino has opted to play the former Burnley man, including against Chelsea in the FA Cup and during the 2-0 win against Arsenal in April.
Walker did return to the starting line-up when Spurs were beaten 1-0 away at West Ham on Friday night, which has dented their chances in the Premier League title race.
Chelsea play Middlesbrough on Monday night at Stamford Bridge before travelling to West Brom four days later – two wins will see Antonio Conte’s team crowned as champions.
Dropped points or a defeat for managerless Boro in the capital will see them relegated back to the Championship.
