Reliable journalist shares why Walker is missing from Tottenham squad to face Hull
By Harvey Byrne
Full-back star Kyle Walker has not been named in the Tottenham team after being assessed for an ankle injury, according to a reliable journalist.
There has been a lot of speculation in recent months in regards to the 26-year-old’s future at Spurs and many are of the belief that he could be heading for the exit doors this summer.
His omission from the Tottenham team for their final Premier League match of the season at the KCOM Stadium on Sunday has only added to the speculation, but it was announced in midweek that Walker would miss the Thursday evening clash against Leicester with an ankle injury.
Now, it would seem he hasn’t recovered in time to face the Tigers with Spurs’ ESPN correspondent Ben Pearce sharing on his personal Twitter account on Sunday that Walker was still being assessed for the ankle injury ahead of the encounter.
