Kyle Naughton's move to Swansea City in doubt

Tottenham's Kyle Naughton could see his hopes of a move away from White Hart Lane dashed due to the valuation placed on him by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

Naughton, a target for Swansea, QPR and Leicester, has not played in the Premier League since being sent off against Stoke in November.

With Kyle Walker back fit and USA international DeAndre Yedlin joining from MLS side Seattle Sounders this month, the ex-Sheffield United full back will struggle to see much, if any, game time.

As a result, a move away would seem to suit all parties but the 26-year-old's transfer to Swansea is in jeopardy due to the £5million price put on his ehad by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

Premier League experience

The right back, who can play on the left, has over 70 appearances in the Premier League for Spurs and Norwich, who he played on loan for in 2011-12.

He also counts as a nation-trained player in the Premier League squad rules, and made nine appearances for the England U21s.

It is no surprise, therefore, that Swansea and others are interested in signing the Sheffield-born full back. Garry Monk's Swans have a lack of cover in the full back areas, while Leicester and QPR could use more Premier League experience in their full back positions.

Naughton's contract is reported to run until the summer of 2016, so a loan move may happen, however head coach Mauricio Pochettino could do with cutting down the size of his squad
