Kyle Walker latest to sign new Spurs deal

Yesterday at 10:52

Kyle Walker has become the latest member of Tottenham’s new contract club after agreeing terms at White Hart Lane until 2021.

The right-back joins a legion of young talent committed to Spurs, with Danny Rose, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen, Tom Carroll and Harry Winks all agreeing fresh terms in September.

"It’s been a long stay [at Tottenham], but I’m fully enjoying it," Walker told the club’s official channel.

"It's like my second home now and I'm happy to commit my future."

Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen is also reportedly poised to agree a new deal.

A lot has happened since Kyle Walker won the PFA Young Player of the Year award in 2012. Once castigated for his poor positional play, the 26-year-old has discovered a new lease of life under Mauricio Pochettino.

He now ranks as one of the finest right-backs in the league and, along with opposite defender Danny Rose, helps Spurs transform into an effective 3-5-2 when in possession as Eric Dier slots in alongside the centre-halves. It's a tactic that's very hard to stop.
