Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has finally spoken about the future of Kyle Walker, who has impressed with his displays at Aston Villa and has found himself in Fabio Capello’s full England squad.
There have been rumours that Gerard Houllier is lining up a £10m bid for the right back, but Harry has moved to quash any approach.
“Kyle will be back here for sure, he’s still learning and got miles to learn but he is a talent, a real prospect,” Harry said.
“He has got all the attributes to be an England right-back of the future. He’ll come back here and push for a place.”
With Alan Hutton looking increasingly likely to be frozen out at the end of 2010-11, Walker’s performances should put paid to any more Phil Neville rumours and he could well return for next season and challenge Corluka for the right back berth.
Good, I will personally drive Hutton away from WHL if he tells me where he wants me to drop him off!
I find this hard to believe. Villa let O’Neill go, because O’Neill wanted more cash. Villa have a wage bill that exceeds their turnover – a lot, and they have just overspent on Darrren Bent – 24m! I cannot believe that Villa would want to add to their money issues by signing a young player with only 7 Premier league appearances for 10m. Villa need to ease their wage bill.
