Saints Linked With Tottenham Defender
Monday, 29th Jan 2018 09:21
Saints are being linked with a move for a Tottenham defender, but when you find out who and in what position you ask why !
Saints are being touted for a loan deal for Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker-Peters, the 20 year old is a right back and that is where the first question mark comes in, this position is well stocked at the club with Cedric Soares, Jeremy Pied and Jack Stephens all able to play there if required.
Secondly is the fact that KWP has very little experience for the North London Soccer Chickens, he made his debut for the club back in August and that remains his only start in the league, although he topped that up with 8 minutes as a sub in September.
His only other appearances came in Cup competitions where he started one game in the League cup and added two FA Cup appearances including the draw at Newport on Saturday, apart from these games he was given a 20 minute run out as a sub in the Champions League.
So why would Saints be interested in a 20 year old with such little experience in a relegation battle ? Yes he is known for his pace and ability to get up the line, but we have a plethora of players able to do that, it just doesnt make any sense.
Saints supporters who are eying the closure of the transfer window in a couple of days nervously would much rather see the likes of Quincy Prmoes arrive and a central defender.

Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
