Tottenham skipper Ledley King has hailed teammates nominated for the PFA awards.

King has backed Scott Parker’s inclusion in the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year.

He said: “Scott’s performances have been at a consistently high level for a few years now, and he’s been a brilliant signing for us this season.

“He’s become a fans’ favourite straight away, and you can see why - he leaves everything on the pitch.”

King has also hailed the contribution of 21-year-old right-back Kyle Walker, who is seen as favourite for the Young Player award after an impressive first season in the Premier League.

“The first time Kyle came into the club, you could see he had all the attributes to be a top, top player," said the England centre-half.

“I was pretty sure then that he would eventually make the right-back position his own.

“It’s his first full season for us, and it’s no surprise that he’s done so well. He’s been tremendous.”
