Some good news! Tottenham Hotspur announced this morning via its social media channels and on its website that young academy graduate and right back Kyle Walker-Peters has signed a new contract with the club that will keep him a Spurs player through 2020.

It’s always great when you can keep your young players in house, and KWP certainly looks like he has a bright future at Spurs. Is he ready for the Premier League RIGHT NOW? Who cares! What’s more important is that he looks promising, will certainly improve, and is locked down for the next three seasons.
The club didn't announce details on KWP's new contract, but you can expect he received a healthy bump in his pay. Walker-Peters will almost certainly be in the match day squad for this Sunday’s game against Burnley at Wembley Stadium, though we’ll have to wait and see if he’ll start the game. Either way, this is excellent news. Congratulations, Kyle!
