Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that defender Kyle Walker has signed a new deal that will tie him to the north London club until 2019.
The England international, who signed from Sheffield United in July, has become a mainstay of the Spurs defence over the last three seasons, and helped them keep an unrivalled six clean sheets in the Barclays Premier League so far this season.
Walker, who had loan spells back at Bramall Lane as well as Queens Park Rangers and Aston Villa, before making the right-back berth his own, made his 100th Barclays Premier League appearance on Sunday, when Andre Villas-Boas’s side beat Hull City 1-0.
Voted Young Player of the Year by the Professional Footballers' Association in 2012, Walker scored twice for Spurs in the top flight including the winning goal at home to Arsenal in the north London derby in October, 2011, which was voted Goal of the Season by Spurs' Supporters Clubs. The 23-year-old has also been capped nine times by England.
