The full-back, who is touted to rival Kyle Walker for the right-back position in the first team has been highly rated by the coaching staff at White Hart Lane for some time now and he must be doing something well to grab the attention of Mauricio Pochettino.
Walker-Peters is a pacey, agile full-back who loves to get forward, similar to first team left back Danny Rose.
The 19-year-old has made 12 appearances for the Spurs Under-23s side in Premier League 2 this season, scoring one goal which came against Derby County Under-23s in a 2-1 win in August.

The right back also has plenty of international experience at youth level with 20 caps at three different levels.
Tottenham have a good history of bringing players through their academy, including Ledley King, Harry Kane and Glenn Hoddle.
They will now be hoping that Walker-Peters’ name can be remembered alongside the aforementioned three in the future.
