Kyle Walker has signed a new contract with Tottenham which will see him at the club until 2019.
Walker joined Spurs in July 2009 from Sheffield Untied along with Kyle Naughton and is now a constant figure in the Spurs team and the England squad.
He was loaned back to his hometown club for half of the season before he was given his Spurs debut the following March under Harry Redknapp.
After two more loan spells at QPR and Aston Villa, it wasn’t until the 2011/12 season he made the right-back position at Spurs his own, scoring the winner in the north London derby from 25-yards-out.
The 23-year-old was awarded the Young Player of the Year, beating off competition from the likes of Gareth Bale, Sergio Aguero and Daniel Sturridge.
Walker’s good form in the Premier League led to him being called up to the England full squad for the first time by Fabio Capello.
He went on to make his debut in a 1-0 win against world champions Spain in November 2011.
He then started the next game against Sweden where he was awarded man of the match. The full-back has already played 112 times for Spurs and nine times for England, playing a part in helping them qualify for the World Cup in Brazil next year.
