Kyle Walker has agreed a new contract that will keep him at Tottenham until 2019, the club confirmed today.

The former Sheffield United full-back signed for Spurs in 2009, and has since made 85 Premier League appearances and 112 in total for the north London club.

Walker earned the PFA Young Player of the Season award in 2012 and has earned nine caps for England.

Now he has been rewarded with a new long-term contract that will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2019.

A statement on Tottenham's official Facebook page read: "We are delighted to announce that Kyle Walker has signed a new contract, committing his future to the Club until 2019.

"The England international signed for us from Sheffield United in July, 2009, he has gone on to make the right-back berth his own, making more appearances for Spurs than any other player last season.

Walker has scored twice for Spurs in his 112 appearances, including the winner against rivals Arsenal in 2011.

Walker was part of the Tottenham side that secured a difficult 1-0 win against Hull that ensured the north London have now had their best ever start to a Premier League season.

Despite the victory at White Hart Lane - secured by a second-half penalty from Roberto Soldado - manager Andre Villas-Boas was critical of the home support, claiming that the team have the support they deserved.

Spurs now sit in 4th place, three points behind leaders Arsenal.
