Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has told The London Evening Standard that his teammate Kyle Walker is back to his best.

Walker is one of the best defenders in the Premier League and was in brilliant form this past season.

The 26-year-old right-back played a key role in Tottenham’s top-four finish in the league and is set to feature for England at the Euro 2016 finals in the summer.

The striker believes that his Tottenham and England teammate is playing like he did in 2012 when he won the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

When asked by The London Evening Standard if Walker was back to the level which saw him win the PFA award in 2012, Kane said: ”Yes. He's been great for Tottenham all season and has come in to do a great job for England as well.”

Walker scored one goal and created 34 chances in 33 Premier League appearances for Tottenham this past season.

The Englishman had a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 54%, and won 49 headers, 17 dribbles and 72 tackles.
