Kyle Walker has shared his delight after agreeing a new contract extension at Tottenham on Friday morning.
The 26-year-old right-back put pen to paper on a new deal taking him to 2021 with Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
In a statement released via his personal Twitter account, the England international, thanked the supporters, while revealing his delight at the extension.

Walker completed a move to White Hart Lane in 2009 alongside team-mate Kyle Naughton from Sheffield United in a combined £9million deal.
He has featured in 196 appearances for the north London club in all competitions during his seven-year stay, becoming a mainstay of Pochettino’s defence.
The attacking full-back has started six matches for Spurs in the new campaign, starring in the Premier League and Champions League.
Tottenham have won three matches with Walker in the side, drawing two and losing one against Monaco.
Pochettino didn’t add anyone to his defence in the summer, clearly happy with his options after an impressive record of conceding just 35 goals in the league last season.
The Argentine boss will be keen for Spurs to push on from their third place finish in the last campaign, while also competing against Europe’s elite in the Champions League.
