'On his way', 'Surely off', 'The end', - Tottenham fans react to Poch selection against Man United

By Harry Sykes

Kyle Walker was axed from the Tottenham team for Sunday’s Premier League win against Manchester United – and fans took to Twitter to express their conviction he will leave the club this summer.

The right-back has been the subject of intense speculation about his future in recent weeks amid reports he has held showdown talks with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino about his future.

Walker, 26, has also lost his regular starting spot in the Spurs side and was once again overlooked for the emotional last-ever match at White Hart Lane.

Kieran Trippier was selected on the right side of defence as Tottenham brushed United aside to secure a 2-1 win with a masterful display.

Walker’s omission sent the rumour mill into overdrive about a player who has been a mainstay of the team since joining in 2009 from Sheffield United.

Spurs fans took to social media to insist that they could see no scenario this summer other than the defender leaving at the same time as the historic stadium.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Walker has stayed silent while reports have claimed he is ready to leave Tottenham but he did recently change his Twitter profile from one of him in a Spurs kit to one in an England jersey.

The right-sided defender has been dropped to the substitute’s bench for five of Spurs’ last nine matches, including the key clashes against Chelsea and Arsenal, even though his peers named him last month in the PFA Premier League team of the season.

There have been suggestions that Walker is holding out for a bigger salary than his current deal, said to be worth between £55,000-a-week and £70,000-a-week.

Manchester City have been most strongly linked with a big-money swoop for the England international, although there is also reported interest from Manchester United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

In other Tottenham transfer news, the club have sensationally terminated the contract of one of their defenders.
