Walker signs new Tottenham deal

Consistent defender rewarded for fine season with contract until 2017

Kyle Walker has established himself as first-team regular at White Hart Lane this season

Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kyle Walker has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2017.

The 21-year-old has been in fine form this season and has established himself as a key part of Harry Redknapp's starting XI.

He has played in 35 of Tottenham’s 36 Barclays Premier League matches this season and has chipped in with important goals against Arsenal and Blackburn Rovers.

His performances earned him the Professional Footballers' Association's Young Player of the Year Award last month, beating Sergio Aguero, Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck in the process.

Walker joined Tottenham from Sheffield United in 2009 and last season he had loan spells at both Queens Park Rangers and Aston Villa.

He made his England debut in the 1-0 victory over Spain last November and is expected to be a part of Roy Hodgson’s squad for this summer’s Euro 2012.
