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.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

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.
