The club announced on Monday that defender Kyle Walker had signed a new contract extension taking him up to 2019. The defender sparks a mixed reaction among the fans but clearly Spurs believe in him and that is reflected in this new deal.

As for Walker himself, the 23 year old is delighted with his new arrangement.

It’s fantastic,” he told the club’s official website. “When I first signed here at the age of 18, I always
wanted to make it a long stay.”

“The lads are fantastic as well as the manager and everyone surrounding the club – it just makes it a lot easier when they do offer you a contract to sign it.”

Walker went on to acknowledge the club’s main target this season and vowed to help secure Champions League football for 2014-15.

“I’m very thankful to the chairman for giving me an extension on the contract and hopefully I can repay him by putting the performances in on the pitch and getting that top four spot.”

So Walker looks set to remain unchallenged as Tottenham’s right back for many seasons to come. That’s bad news for Adam Smith but can Kyle remain consistent enough to justify his place?

  1. I hope so! – I feel he needs some compo badly.

    It should be Naughton, but, I assume we really wanted to sign Contreao to fight with Danny Rose and didn’t get him so were in the same pickle we were in last year in that both Danny & Kyle only have Naughton & Verts as Compo and neither of them are reall the answer to the compo thats needed.

    Anyway, refreshing to hear an article other than AVB ‘slams’ Spurs ‘fans’… He didn’t slam anyone and he is right.

    Yes…. We most certainly could be playing better football… But, as a manager myself, (both in local footy and at work) you need to start at the bottom and work up!

    In football terms, this equates to starting at the back…

    Now tell me AVB hasn’t done that?!?! – Go on, bloody try!!

    The forward play/expression always comes next.

    ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE HAD TO RECTIFY A HUGELY UNBALANCED SQUAD!!!!!! – ANYONE THAT DOESNT RECOGNISE THIS SHOULD GIVE UP AND FOLLOW SOMETHING ELSE.

    Sorry for the black and white nature of this, but I am sick to death of idiot ‘fans’ that don’t know what they’re talking about!!!!! – And unfortuantely we have plenty of em.

    The balcne and depth we have now is fantastic, BUT!!! OF COURSE IT WILL BLOODY WELL TAKE TIME TO GET A LOAD OF YOUNG LADS THAT DONT KNOW THE SAME LANGAUGE A BIT OF TIME TO MOLD/GEL!!!! ISNT IT BLOODY OBVIOUS!?!?!?!?! AND IN THE MEAN-TIME WEVE DONE THAT WHILST REMAINING AT THE TOP A QUARTER OF THE WAY THOUGH THE LEAGUE!!! –

    ANYONE THAT CANNOT APPRECIATE THIS SHOULD JUST F**K OFF.

    COYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
