Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino says that he does not intend on loaning out Kyle Walker-Peters during the January transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has ruled out a January loan exit for Kyle Walker-Peters by saying that the defender is "one of his best options".

Walker-Peters has endured a frustrating time at the North London out due to being behind Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier in the pecking order, but the Englishman has recently penned a new contract.

The 21-year-old was called upon to feature against Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday night, and having impressed Pochettino, it appears that the full-back will see out the season at his current side.

At a press conference, Pochettino told reporters: "Now, no. Now, for me, he's one of the best options. Like always, who deserves it more is going to play - you know me. I'm so happy with his performance.

"Look what happened against PSV with Toby [Alderweireld], or Juan Foyth on another day [against Arsenal], or the same with [Kieran] Trippier in the game [against] City or Barcelona. The same [with] Hugo [Lloris]. All the players can struggle sometimes in some actions but the most important thing is to see the big picture, and he was very good.

"I wanted to protect him in the second half because he had a yellow card but I'm so happy and so proud of how he managed the pressure. I'm very pleased and I talk very highly of him."

Walker-Peters's outing at Camp Nou was just his third appearance in all competitions this season.
