Aston Villa youngster Ciaran Clark is desperate to see new manager Alex McLeish bring Kyle Walker to Villa Park permanently.
The Tottenham right back spent half of last season on loan with the Villains, making 18 appearances for Gerard Houllier's side, and impressed with a number of swashbuckling displays.
“Kyle was brilliant for us last season. I am sure the lads would love him to come back," said 21-year-old Clark.
“We all know what a top lad he is and gets along with all the boys and we would love him to come back again but we realise Tottenham is his club, so we’ll just have to wait and see.”
His performances caught the eye of England boss Fabio Capello, who called Walker into his squad for matches against Demark and Wales.
And, although he did not make his senior international bow, Walker further enhanced his credentials for Stuart Pearce's Young Lions during the European Championships earlier this month.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has been sufficiently happy with the progress the 21-year-old and, despite the wishes of Villa, has confirmed Walker will be staying at White Hart Lane.
“Kyle will be back here for sure, he’s still learning and got miles to learn but he is a talent, a real prospect,” Redknapp said.
“He has got all the attributes to be an England right back of the future. He’ll come back here and push for a place.”
