Kyle Walker wants to be part of Tottenham Hotspur's future

Kyle Walker is determined to stay at Tottenham Hotspur for the long-term.

Kyle Walker has told the Hampstead and Highgate Newspaper that he wants to stay at Tottenham Hotspur for the long term.

Spurs have mounted an unexpected push for the Premier League title this season, and their rise feels like it is set to last.

The Lilywhites have one of the youngest squads in the Premier League, and it should only improve as the years go by.

Spurs are also on the verge of moving to a new ground, which should enable them to attract even more fans and raise more funds.

And Walker is hoping to stick around with the North London club, as they build for a promising future.

“I would love to be a part of it,” the 25-year-old England international defender told the Hampstead and Highgate Newspaper. “We’ve got some fantastic youth players here and the sky’s the limit for us because we are so young and all so keen to improve.

“Hopefully we keep improving, keep singing off the same hymn sheet and let’s see what happens.”

Many would have doubted whether Walker would remain at Tottenham beyond this season, but his progression has been hugely impressive.

The 25-year-old has made 26 appearances for Spurs this term, and he has looked rock solid at the back.

Previously, the former Sheffield United man has been guilty of being slightly erratic in a defensive sense, but he has been far more secure this season.

Walker's contribution has helped Tottenham keep a better defensive record than any other top-flight club this season, with Pochettino’s side conceding just 22 times in 28 matches.
