The club have announced that our right back Kyle Walker has signed a contract extension at Spurs that will currently take him up to 2019. A statement on the official website reads,

‘We are delighted to announce that Kyle Walker has signed a new contract, committing his future to the Club until 2019.

‘Voted Young Player of the Year by the Professional Footballers’ Association in 2012, Kyle has made a total of 112 appearances in our colours, scoring twice including a stunning winner in the north London derby at home to Arsenal in October, 2011, which went on to be voted Goal of the Season by our Supporters Clubs.’

Since the end of the 2011-12 campaign, things have been a little more difficult for the defender who has received his fair share of criticism from some sections of the supporters. However, he appears to have established himself as first choice right back for the full England side and this contract extension is a clear sign that the club has great faith in him.

Are you pleased at hearing the news?

  1. seriously ? no.. only have pace, misplace passes so often, out of position often and gives away easy freekicks for opponents.

  2. Why are supporters like Spurs4life so bloody negative?? It is great news Kyle has signed a new contract, he does have pace and is a natural athlete, he does misplace passes and needs to improve on his defending but he is young and still has the potential. Great news to get him signed up, another young player tied on a long term contract and English to boot COYS

    season- let me tel y- our defense s plays
    high on the pitch wic conjests the space 4
    attackers… 4 this tactic we need players
