The 21-year-old â€” who will appear in his 48th game of the season when Tottenham face Aston Villa tomorrow â€” refuses to accept he has already made it and that he no longer has to work hard as a result.
Walker told The Sun: â€œIâ€™ve strived to be the best I can and worked tirelessly to make it â€” but I would never take what I have achieved so far for granted.
â€œThe moment you become complacent and get ahead of yourself you face the threat of throwing it all away. And I could never do that. I couldnâ€™t let people down who have made so many sacrifices to get me where I am.
â€œNaturally Iâ€™m proud of what I have achieved so far but Iâ€™m still young and still learning. And I donâ€™t think I will stop learning even when I eventually stop playing."
