Tottenham defender Walker to miss start of season

Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker will miss the start of the season after failing to fully recover from the injury which forced him to miss the end of last season, reports the Daily Mail.

The 24-year-old is also likely to be forced to sit out England’s first Euro 2016 qualifier in Switzerland on September 9 after missing Premier League games against West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers and Liverpool.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful that Walker can recover soon from his pelvic problems, which he initially suffered from in March. He is also working on a deal to sign American DeAndre Yedlin, who would provide competition with Walker for the right-back slot.

Should Yedlin not be signed in time for the game at Upton Park on Saturday, Kyle Naughton would be expected to deputise, having played regularly for the club in the second half of last season.

Aside from Yedlin, who made three appearances for the United States at the World Cup, Tottenham are also keen on signing unsettled Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, although the Saints are adamant he will not be leaving.
