Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker has revealed he's taking on a senior leadership role at the club.

Though just 23, Walker is now an England international and a fans' favourite.

"It's vital that we have that English experience in the side, players like Michael Dawson, to pull the others through. Players are now asking me for my opinions and I'm thinking, 'I'm only 23. Should I be giving my opinion?

"But it's great to know they trust in me. I'm still not where I want to be in my football career, because I want to play 500 games. I enjoy the influence and try to lead as much as I can. If I believe something is right, then I'm going to say it."
