Bale lauds impact of Tottenham defender Walker

Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has hailed the impact young full-back Kyle Walker has had since breaking into the side.

Walker, who was named PFA Young Player of the Year, has impressed in his first full season at White Hart Lane.

"He needed a run in the team, he got that and he's showed exactly what he can do this season," Bale told Spurs TV.

"He's played really well. He's set himself a benchmark this season and hopefully he can maintain it.

"Players know all about him now, they will be looking to stop those forward runs and he has to find a way around it - I'm sure he will."
