Spurs full-back interests Saints

Southampton are showing interest in Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kyle Naughton as Mauricio Pochettino addresses a problem position.

The Saints boss is on the lookout for cover in both full-back positions, which Naughton can offer having played on both sides of the back four for Spurs last season.

The 24-year-old Sheffield-born player is under contract until 2016 and could cost up to £5million, but Pochettino is aware that Nathaniel Clyne and Luke Shaw have been out with injuries, while Clyne could use some healthy competition to increase his standards.

Naughton made 13 starts for Spurs in the Premier League last term after returning from a season-long loan at Norwich in which he started 29 games.

He is currently in Hong Kong with the Spurs squad for the Barclays Asia Trophy where he was named on the bench for their 3-1 defeat to Sunderland on Wednesday.
