White Hart Lane is the place to be for Kyle

Published Add your comment

Kyle Walker has made his intentions perfectly clear as the new season fast approaches, with a first team breakthrough at White Hart Lane top of his agenda for 2011-12.

The 21-year-old Tottenham defender enjoyed successful loan spells at Npower Championship winners QPR and later Aston Villa last year, giving Walker his first real taste of Barclays Premier League football.

His progression was rewarded with a call-up to the senior England side, and fresh off the back of the European Under 21 Championships, where he was one of few players to excel in the tournament, Walker is hungry to make the successful step up to the Spurs first-team.

"I've come here to play now," he said. "I have tasted Premier League football and that is what I want to do, I want to play football for Tottenham."


Harry Redknapp is known for giving youth a chance, with his 'if you're good enough, you're old enough' mentality of promoting promising young players first established in his time at West Ham.

That approach should bode well for Walker, who is determined to build on last season's exploits and continue his progression in north London.

"I have signed a new contract and if I didn't want to stay here I wouldn't have signed it," he continued.

"I just want to play football and I want to play for Tottenham."
