Bio

Widely regarded as one of the best-attacking full-backs in Europe...

Kyle Walker was City’s third signing of summer 2017, arriving on a five-year deal from Tottenham Hotspur.

Taking the number two shirt, the 29-year-old has made the right-back slot his own and won six trophies in his first two seasons.

A product of the Sheffield United academy, he spent time on loan at Northampton Town before returning to Bramall Lane and impressing in the final few games of the season 2008-09 season.

Spurs moved for him that summer, but his progress continued at his home town club, who he immediately returned to on loan.

However, after impressing in the opening months of the 2009/10 season, he was recalled to Spurs and made two senior appearances.

Further loan moves followed, to QPR and Aston Villa, in a bid to secure further first-team experience, but in 2011 he forced his way into the Spurs side and became their first-choice right-back.

He left White Hart Lane with 228 appearances to his name and has won the PFA Young Player of the Year in 2012, as well as twice being selected in the PFA Team of the Year.

Since his arrival, Walker has been a near constant presence.

He made his 100th City appearance in the 2019 FA Cup final, reaching the milestone in less than two years.

An impressive debut campaign saw him win his first senior honours, the Carabao Cup and Premier League, and he went one better in 2019, adding the Community Shield and FA Cup to his medal collection.

At an international level, Walker has played more than 40 times since his 2011 debut, a 1-0 win over Spain, and sandwiched between his two seasons at City was a World Cup campaign.

He was deployed on the right of a back three and impressed in the unfamiliar position as England reached the semi-finals of the tournament.
