Kyle Walker has signed a new contract with Tottenham which will keep him at the club until 2019.

Walker, 23, signed from Sheffield United in 2009 and has gone on to make 112 appearances for Spurs in total.

After a loan spell back at Bramall Lane, and subsequent loans to QPR and Aston Villa, Walker has become the first-choice right-back at White Hart Lane and was voted Young Player of the Year by the Professional Footballers' Association in 2012.

Walker has also played an important role in helping England to qualify for the 2014 World Cup, winning nine caps.
