Two of the club’s up and coming stars were rewarded with new contracts yesterday as Danny Rose and Kyle Walker put pen to paper on deals that will take them to 2015 and 2016 respectively.
Both players were involved with England under 21’s in the summer and while Walker impressed at Aston Villa, Rose returned to the Spurs’ first team and showed his versatility by covering for BAE at left back.

Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp confirmed that Walker would be involved with the first team next season,

“He is the most exciting attacking right-back you could wish to see,” Harry said.

“He did great at Villa. He’s a great attacking right-back, loves to bomb forward.

“He has got to improve defensively a little bit but he’s only a baby and he’s got a great future.”

While Rose may also remain with the squad and cover various positions, the news is good for both players who look set for bright futures.

  1. This seems great — both that they’ve signed extensions and Harry seems to plan on actually using them (think Kranjcar, Gio, etc.)

    Contrary to most Spurs fans, I actually liked Hutton — an attacking right fullback that needed some defensive improvement. Walker seems like the same but young enough to fix the flaw.

    About Bale: he’s great as a left-wing and I’ve been a fan since he joined, but there seem to be more quality left-wings that we could potentially sign than quality, attacking, left full-backs.
    I wouldn’t mind seeing Bale pulled back and room for a new, young wing to join the squad (if wishing were having I’d take Hazard or Erikson from Ajax). Bale’s main quality — more than his speed — is his stamina. He’d be able to make huge overlapping runs and still have the lungs to get back and defend.
