Friday 04 May 2012
The Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker has signed a new contract to keep him at White Hart Lane until 2017.
The England international, who was last month voted PFA young player of the year, has been one of the north London club's most impressive performers this season as they attempt to qualify for the Champions League.
The 21-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Queen's Park Rangers and Aston Villa, has started 35 of Spurs' 36 games in the Premier League this term.
"His performances have not gone unnoticed, with his fellow professionals voting him the PFA young player of the year last month," Spurs said.
