Aston Villa signing Matthew Lowton admits he's using Tottenham star Kyle Walker as inspiration.

Sheffield United have produced several top full-backs in recent seasons - another being Kyle Naughton who flourished under Villa manager Paul Lambert at his previous club Norwich City.

"They have produced some fantastic players over the years - look at the two Kyles," Lowton told Villa's website.

"They are both doing fantastic and both came through the same academy as I did and played in the same teams as me when I was younger so hopefully I can follow in their footsteps."
