Tottenham fans react as Walkes nears exit

Tottenham Hotspur defender Anton Walkes is on the verge of leaving the Premier League club for Portsmouth, according to Portsmouth News.

The 21-year-old ended the 2017-18 campaign on loan at League One outfit Portsmouth following a spell with Atlanta United in the MLS.

Walkes has made a first-team appearance for Tottenham, but that came in a EFL Cup match back in September 2016, and he has not featured since.

Walkes, who is capable of operating in both defence and midfield, was highly-rated during his time in the youth system at Tottenham.

The Englishman has struggled to make the step into the first team, however, and it is being reported that he is closing on a permanent move to Portsmouth.

The Tottenham fans, who have also been commenting on the rumours surrounding Ivan Perisic, have been reacting to the report, and many are not surprised to learn that Walkes is nearing an exit.

That said, one Spurs supporter claimed that Walkes is currently better than first-team defender Serge Aurier, and should be given the chance to stake a claim.
