Tottenham Hotspur may allow right-back Kyle Walker-Peters to go to Swansea City on loan once the January transfer window opens, according to The Sun.

The 20-year-old made his first-team Spurs debut against Newcastle United in the first Premier League game of the season.

The Tottenham man was given his opportunity following Kyle Walker’s departure to Manchester City and Kieran Trippier’s absence through injury.

However, the former Burnley man was soon back fit and with Serge Aurier having since arrived at the club, Walker-Peter’s immediate chances of more first-team action are slim.

Therefore, it would not be a surprise if Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino would prefer Walker-Peters to gain Premier League matchday experience away from Spurs.

The Sun reports that Swansea boss Paul Clement is interested in taking the England Under-21 international on a short-term loan deal.

The report claims the Swans manager wants Walker-Peters to provide ex-Spurs player Kyle Naughton with competition for the right-back slot at The Liberty Stadium

He also came off the substitutes bench against Huddersfield Town in the league and featured in the EFL Cup win against Barnsley, but has otherwise seen little action.

There are strong links between Swansea and Tottenham and over the years players have moved between the two clubs on regular occasions.

Gylfi Sigurdsson went from Swansea to Spurs and back, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Fernando Llorente headed to London, while the Swans signed Tom Carroll last season after he had spent time with them on loan.

Steven Caulker is another former player who was loaned to the Welsh side.

Walker-Peters has a contract with Spurs until 2020 but with Trippier and Aurier ahead of him in the Spurs line-up a short-term move away from the club for a player that Pochettino reportedly rates highly could be a good one for both parties.

The Sun also claims that Stoke City may also be interested in taking the Tottenham defender on loan as well as they look for defensive options.
