You won't see Tottenham fullback Walker in gossip pages

Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker says fans won't see him in the gossip pages.

Walker admits he prefers home life to nightlife.

He declared in The Sun: "Partying is not for me. I prefer a quiet life. I have a long-term girlfriend and a new baby boy so my focus is on other areas of my life.

"I wouldn't want to find myself in the papers for all the wrong reasons.

"If I go out it's for a quiet meal with friends and family and then I head home.

"You have to make certain sacrifices in life if you want to achieve things and going out partying until the early hours of the morning isn't something I approve of.

"I can't lose sight of the fact that I don't just owe it to myself to behave in an appropriate manner, but I'm also conscious that I'm a role model for young kids and have a moral responsibility to behave and set the right example. Fortunately I have some very good people around me, like my agent Mark Rankine at Base Soccer Agency, who has been with me since I was 16 and made sure I kept on the straight and narrow.

"And my parents were extremely strict and brought me up the right way."
