The Blues are expecting to land the versatile Spurs man for the rest of the season.

Walkes’ addition will boost Kenny Jackett’s options at the back and - importantly - in midfield.

The 20-year-old can play as a full-back, central defender or holding midfielder.

Walkes has recently spent time playing in the MLS with Atlanta United.

The 6ft 2in man has one senior appearance for the Londoners - off the bench in the EFL Cup last season.

Walkes’ arrival means he would join Wolves loanees Sylvain Deslandes and Connor Ronan as Jackett’s January business so far.
