Southampton Football Club is delighted to announce it has completed the loan signing of highly-rated young full-back Kyle Walker-Peters.

The 22-year-old, who can play on either side of defence, has joined Saints from Tottenham Hotspur for the remainder of the season, providing additional strength to Ralph Hasenhüttl’s squad for the final months of the campaign.
 
Walker-Peters, who is a product of the Spurs academy, has represented England at every level from Under-18s to Under-21s and has made 24 first-team appearances with his club, the most recent of which saw him start away to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last month.

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl said: “I am very pleased to have Kyle with us for the rest of the season. He is a talented young player, with good defensive and attacking qualities.
 
“It was clear this month that we could use additional support in the full-back positions, and Kyle was exactly the profile of player I was hoping we could bring in.
 
“He will be a good addition to our squad, and we are pleased that he has chosen to join us ahead of a number of other clubs who were interested in signing him.”

Kyle Walker-Peters said: “On a personal note I'm just grateful for the opportunity I've been given by the manager and the club.

“I come here looking to help the club improve and improve myself. I just want to win as many games as possible and enjoy playing football.

“I had a chat with the manager and he assured me I was the type of player he liked and I got that feeling from watching Southampton that I could fit in well.”
