Kyle Walker, currently away on international duty, has been on the front pages, after the incident that took place in his hometown, Sheffield, during a night out, earlier this Summer.

Photos have since emerged of him inhaling the 'legal high' Nitrous Oxide, from a balloon.

"Apologies for not commenting sooner on a story about me today. I've been training and am focused on Tuesday's game for England," he said via his Twitter account.

"Now I know the health risks, it was poor judgement on my part.

"I won't be doing this again and hope that no one else is influenced into putting their health at risk by my actions."

The FA say his actions were not illegal, hence why he won't face any disciplinary action
Walker has seven caps to his name, after making his debut against World champions, Spain in 2011. Just one year later, he won the 2012 PFA Young Player of the Year Award.

The FA's statement is as follows: "Kyle Walker has expressed his regret for an error of judgement when inhaling Nitrous Oxide earlier this year.

"The FA and the England manager have spoken to Kyle about the matter and he has assured us it will not happen again. Inhaling Nitrous Oxide is not illegal, but we recognise the associated dangers.

"Kyle has accepted this mistake. He will not face any action under the England Player Code of Conduct.

"The FA and England manager will not be making any further comment on this matter and will be focusing their full attention on Tuesday's match with Ukraine."

Walker will be looking to prove critics wrong if he takes to the field against Ukraine this Tuesday.
