Tottenham Hotspur right back Kyle Walker has signed a new five-year contract with the club, extended his stay at White Hart Lane until 2021.
Walker, 26, joined Tottenham back in 2009 from Sheffield United, and has made 195 appearances in all competitions for the club. The England international is the latest of core players that have extended their deals, with Christian Eriksen, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, and Danny Rose all signing new deals in the past few weeks.
“It is a great honor,” Walker told the club’s official website. “I want to say a big thank you to the chairman and the manager for putting their faith in me.
“It has been a long story here but a very enjoyable one.
“It is like my second home now and I am happy to commit my future to Tottenham Hotspur.”
Walker is confident that Spurs have a very promising future ahead, and that manager Mauricio Pochettino has done a great job since taking over in 2014.
“It’s a bright future for Tottenham,” Walker said.
“We’ve got a lot of young players here now. I’m one of the old heads and I have to take that on my shoulders.
“When I first came here it was always my plan that I wanted to stay for the long run. It wasn’t a stepping stone to get me somewhere or to go from one to another. I signed here to stay here.
“I want to say a big thanks to the fans, who have been fantastic to me.
“We now as players need to drive us all on to where we think we should be and hopefully win medals along the way.”
