The 22-year-old, who can play on either side of defence, has joined Saints from Spurs for the remainder of the season to get more regular first-team action and provide 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.

"On a personal note I'm just grateful for the opportunity I've been given by the manager and the club," Walker-Peters told Southamptonfc.com.

"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."
