Kyle's delight at new deal
28 October 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
Kyle Walker anticipates a bright future after he committed himself to the Club by signing a new contract on Monday.
Our popular right-back, who signed for us from Sheffield United in July, 2009, has agreed a new deal through until 2019.
And the 23-year-old England international spoke of his delight after putting pen to paper.
“It’s fantastic,” he said. “When I first signed here at the age of 18, I always wanted to make it a long stay.
“The lads are fantastic as well as the manager and everyone surrounding the club – it just makes it a lot easier when they do offer you a contract to sign it.
“I’m very thankful to the Chairman for giving me an extension on the contract and hopefully I can repay him by putting the performances in on the pitch and getting that top four spot.”
Kyle has also been encouraged by our fantastic start to the season, which has seen us keep 12 clean sheets in 15 games in all competitions to date.
“Tottenham have always had great players and it has gone very well for us since the start of the season,” he continued. “The players we’ve got and the depth around the team is very good, so it’s bright things (ahead) for Tottenham and hopefully everything comes together.”
Kyle added that he’s still striving to improve his game, as every match goes by.
“I’m still young and I’m still learning my trade. Hopefully I can improve and take note of the experienced players here to make myself a better player.”
