Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters has agreed terms for a new deal, according to a report.

The London Evening Standard claims that Walker-Peters, 21, has agreed a one-year extension as well as a payrise which sees him commit himself to Spurs until 2021.

The right-back only penned a new three-year deal back in August when he made his debut against Newcastle United, however it is understood that Mauricio Pochettino was so impressed by his progress that he was rewarded with a new contract.

Football Insider verdict

Walker-Peters is a fantastic young talent and he deserves a new deal. He has broken into the senior squad this season by making four appearances in all competitions, scored his first senior goal and put in a man of the match shift against Leicester on Sunday. It can only get better for the youngster too with a new deal seemingly showing that Pochettino plans on handing him a bigger role next season. As long as the full-back is making more than 15 or so appearances in all competitions then it would be worth keeping him around at Spurs, however a loan deal might also be a good idea given the current numbers at full-back. Walker-Peters’ advantage is that he can play on both flanks, but that won’t be able to get him in the team over Ben Davies, Danny Rose, Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier. He is definitely Premier League quality though and can do a job for someone next term.
