(Reuters) - Southampton have signed Tottenham Hotspur right back Kyle Walker-Peters on loan until the end of the season, the Premier League clubs said on Wednesday.

Tottenham academy graduate Walker-Peters, 22, has made five appearances across all competitions this season, but only once since Jose Mourinho took charge, in the 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich last month.

British media reported that Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion were also interested in signing the England Under-21 international.

"He is a talented young player, with good defensive and attacking qualities," Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuettl said in a statement here

“It was clear this month that we could use additional support in the full-back positions, and Kyle was exactly the profile of player I was hoping we could bring in.”

Southampton, ninth in the league table, visit leaders Liverpool on Saturday.
