Tottenham defender Kyle Walker unveils the boots he'll wear after nine month injury

Can Kyle Walker bring balance back to the Tottenham team.

Tottenham Hotspur have not had the best of luck with defenders this season. Right-back in particular has been something of a problem.

Kyle Walker has been out injured since March with an abdominal injury, which required surgery in September. Walker had his World Cup dreams dashed by the injury and Walker is a player needed by Tottenham at the moment.

Eric Dier is young, and predominantly a central defender. Vlad Chiriches is proving to be as useless at right-back as he is at centre-back. Meanwhile Kyle Naughton has never really lived up to his billing.

Walker's return is therefore very much anticipated and he has now Tweeted a picture of the boots he will be wearing when he makes his long-awaited return to action for Tottenham Hotspur.

He took part in a big campaign today from Nike to show off their new boots, but for Walker it means more than that. Those boots will wait until he is fit enough for a return to the first team - with Tottenham fans hoping that time comes as soon as possible.
