Tottenham fullback Walker named PFA Young Player of 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.'
