Gareth sings Kyle's praises

There's little doubt that Kyle Walker was one of our biggest success stories this season.

Gareth sings Kyle's praises

The defender was recognised by his fellow professionals as the PFA Young Player of the Year at an awards ceremony in April, and his superb form did not go unnoticed by his teammates at Spurs either.

Gareth Bale says Kyle will be a marked man next season, but that the full-back has all the skills needed to take his superb form this season into the next one.

"He needed a run in the team, he got that and he’s showed exactly what he can do this season," Gareth told Spurs TV.

"He’s played really well. He’s set himself a benchmark this season and hopefully he can maintain it.

"Players know all about him now, they will be looking to stop those forward runs and he has to find a way around it – I’m sure he will."
