Tottenham fullback Walker named PFA Young Player of Year

Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker has been named PFA Young Player of the Year.

Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker has been named PFA Young Player of the Year.

The 21-year-old Spurs defender beat the likes of Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Manchester Unietd's Danny Welbeck to win the trophy and it came as quite a surprise to the former Sheffield United man.

"I was a bit surprised because defenders don't normally get these awards and get the limelight as much as the centre-forwards,'' he said.

"If you look at the people I was in with then it is a great honour to get the award and hopefully there is more to come.

"It is always an honour to be selected by the people you play against and, like I say, hopefully I can get a few more of these and some medals with Tottenham along the way.'
