Naughton admits Walker may force him into Tottenham decision

Norwich City fullback Kyle Naughton is facing a big decision over his next move.

With his long-time friend Kyle Walker currently holding down the right-back berth at parent club Tottenham, Naughton could be heading for a difficult decision over his future.

"Kyle and I became close pals at the Sheffield United Academy and our families go back even further," he told the Daily Mail. "So it's a bit ironic that he's now effectively standing in my way at Tottenham. I don't begrudge him his place one bit because he's playing really well and I can have no complaints.

"But I may have to assess things at the end of the season because, first and foremost, I want to be playing Premier League football. I'll talk to Tottenham and see what they think, but if it looks like they can't give me at least a couple of games, then perhaps we'll have to have a look around.

"I still have ambitions of following Kyle into the England squad after playing for the Under 21s and I need to be a regular in the Premier League to do that."
