Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker wants to get to the FA Cup final for manager Harry Redknapp.

Walker would also like to repay his manager for the faith and help Redknapp has given him – and could still do so if he gets the England job.

“He’s been a massive influence,” said Walker. “I saw myself as fifth choice when I came here but he gave me my chance and sent me on loan to get confidence. I went back to Sheffield United and started to believe in myself. Then players started leaving here and I thought, ‘Why not?’

“But all my loan spells got me to where I am now. I also went to Northampton, QPR and Villa, who gave me a chance to play in the Premier League.”
