Kyle Naughton: Considering his future at Tottenham

The 25-year-old has found himself playing mostly at left-back this season despite admitting his preferred position is right-back.

The former Sheffield United man has seen Kyle Walker block his path to the right-back spot and Naughton concedes he may have to move on so that he can play reguarly in his preferred position

Naughton told the Daily Mirror: "I am 25 and there is a stage that you reach when you think, 'Well, am I going to be No 1?'

"That is what I am looking for. I want to be playing every single week. I want to be playing regularly.

"I am not sure what is going to happen, but if I can't hold down a first-team spot then I do have to look elsewhere.

"I am not going to lie - I am a right-back. That is the position I want to play in, but it has been difficult with Kyle Walker doing so well."

@ryanssmile10 - he has been given numerous chances in the league, europe and the cups, and not once has he looked anything other than utterly incompetent. He cannot control the ball, tackle, track runners, pass or indeed do many of the basic skills you'd expect of a premier league footballer, and he has constantly used the excuse of lack of opportunities despite the fact that it is his technique which is clearly fundamentally bobbins rather than affected by rustiness.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
