Southampton have won the race to sign defender Kyle Walker-Peters on loan until the end of this season from fellow Premier League club Tottenham.

The right-back underwent a medical on Tuesday afternoon before finalising his move to St Mary's Stadium where he will link up with Republic of Ireland duo, Shane Long and Michael Obafemi.

Crystal Palace and Brighton were the other two top-flight sides interested in signing the 22-year-old who was left out in the cold by Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese only used Walker-Peters once, in the Champions League away game against Bayern Munich, and the former England under-21 international only made three league appearances at the start of the season.

Walker-Peters is hoping to make a contribution to a Saints team that has hit a rich vein of form of late.

"I'm looking to use this opportunity to improve as a football player, but most importantly win games here, and show the manager he made the right decision in bringing me here, and also show the fans that," said Walker-Peters.

"I'm just grateful for the opportunity I've been given by the manager and the club. 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.

Saints manager Ralph Hassenhutl has a good record with regard to giving young players a chance and the new signing was impressed by what he heard from his new boss.

"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.

"Not only that, but it's a huge club, and for me I need to be in a team that will suit my style and help me develop, so those were the main reasons."
