Kyle Walker is backing Tottenham teammate Erik Lamela to become a Premier League star.

The Argentinian ace was outstanding as Spurs saw off FC ­Sheriff 2-1 in the ­Europa League last week.

Walker told the Daily Star Sunday: "He's very ­talented but you have to ­remember it can be very difficult to settle here.

"It was hard enough for me when I came down from Sheffield and that is only two hours away on the M1!

"So it has been much more ­difficult for him but he proved his talent when he got his goal and earned the penalty too.

"When he gets the chance I am sure he can continue to show his ability."
