'That's the end of Aurier then' - Tottenham fans react as defender agrees terms
By Danny Wright
Tottenham fans have surprisingly offered a mixed reaction to the news that Kyle Walker-Peters has penned a new three-year deal.
Spurs announced on their official Twitter account on Wednesday that Walker-Peters, 20, had agreed terms to a new contract which keeps him at the north London club until 2020, but most supporters are disappointed that they have not yet signed someone to replace Kyle Walker.
Walker-Peters earned his senior debut earlier this month when he starred in the 2-0 win over Newcastle due to an injury to regular right-back Kieran Trippier.
The England Under-20s defender was hailed for his performance and that appears to have merited a new deal being offered to him.
However with Walker fetching Spurs £50million in his move to Manchester City, most supporters have used this latest news to vent their frustration that a top right-back has not been brought in to replace him like Paris St. Germain’s Serge Aurier.

Should really have started on Sunday against Chelsea. Don't think it sends out the right message when he played so well in previous game

Walker-Peters has no doubt had a fantastic summer with his Spurs debut being topped off by an Under-20 World Cup win with England.
It remains to be seen whether or not Tottenham go in for a new right-back, but at the moment t seems like Walker-Peters is very much the back-up option to Trippier.
In other Tottenham news, Spurs have sent their scouts to keep close tabs on this Argentina international who is also wanted by Juventus and Manchester United.
