Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker has ambitions to break back into the full England squad.

The former Sheffield United defender has enjoyed a memorable 2011 after joining Aston Villa on loan in January and quickly establishing himself as the club's first-choice right-back.

His performances meant he became an England squad regular and he would have made his international debut against Holland had the game not been postponed due to rioting in London.

However, he is refusing to get carried away with his progress, despite looking in the reckoning for Euro 2012.

"I'm all about taking small steps," he said. "I want to cement a first-team place here. The rest will take care of itself. If I am playing well then who knows."
