Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kyle Walker is reportedly on the verge of putting pen to paper on a new five-year deal with the club.
The 26-year-old arrived at White Hart Lane in 2009, and after initially struggling to hold down a place in the first team, he has since gone on to become a permanent fixture of Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Loan spells with QPR and Aston Villa helped his development, but according to The Sun, he’s now ready to commit his long-term future to Spurs by following Christian Eriksen in signing a new deal this summer.
The report insists that the deal will be worth a staggering £19.5m, while the defender will also get a testimonial at some point in the future.
Walker featured in 33 Premier League games last season, which in turn helped him secure his place in Roy Hodgson’s squad for Euro 2016.
Having also been selected in Sam Allarydce’s starting line-up in his first game in charge against Slovakia earlier this month, it appears as though Walker is also winning the fight to be the first-choice England right-back moving forward.
Spurs are evidently keen on rewarding his form and progress, and Pochettino will likely be delighted to continue to secure the futures of key individuals in his squad after having focused on the transfer market up until the end of last month.
After finishing third in the Premier League last season, Tottenham will be desperate to improve on their efforts and avoid falling away late on again, while they also have the addition of Champions League football to their schedule this year.
