Walker is in the squad to face West Ham, says Spurs boss Pochettino

By Ciaran McGrath in Football

KYLE Walker will feature in the Lilywhites’ matchday squad to face West Ham tomorrow, despite rumours that the right back is unsettled at the club, manager Mauricio Pochettino has said.

Pochettino refused to be drawn on what he described as "rumours" of a rift between him and Walker - but stressed that the England defender was focused and ready to play.

Widespread reports have suggested that Walker was unhappy after Kieran Trippier was preferred for the FA Cup semi-final clash with Chelsea, and Sunday’s North London derby against Arsenal.

Pochettino stressed that no decisions about the futures of any of his players would be made prior to the end of the season.
