By Dominic Toner

Tottenham defender Kyle Walker admitted it was a huge honour to be named in the PFA team of the year and congratulated three of his teammates for also being included.

Spurs trio Danny Rose, Dele Alli and Harry Kane were also in the league’s best XI and recognised for their performances this season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are competing for the Premier League title and are second in the table, just four points adrift of leaders Chelsea.

The Argentinian boss has built his squad around a strong English core and his faith has been rewarded in the past couple of seasons.

Walker expressed his delight on his personal Twitter account for being included in the team of the year and thanked his fellow professional for voting.

Walker has become an important player for the north London club and come a long way since his arrival in 2009 from boyhood side Sheffield United.

The right-back has now racked up 224 appearances for Spurs and is a permanent feature in Pochettino’s starting line-up.

The England international has played as a right wing-back for the majority of the campaign and showed the attacking side of his game, chipping in with six assists this season.
