Dawson feels Walker's loan move to Aston Villa is a great development for the fullback.
He said: "It is fantastic for Kyle. When we signed him, I thought - 'what a talent he is'.
"He went out on loan to QPR earlier in the season and did fantastically well for them and left them in a good position.
"Tottenham called him back and he went to Villa - a massive club - he has got a couple of goals, is doing well, and deserves to be in the squad.
"He is fantastic lad and still only very young. He has started off like a dream at Villa. He is quick and gets himself up and down. He is a great player and deserves to be here, no question.
"With myself and a few Villa faces here in the squad, he is nice and relaxed too.
"He is just a top player. He gets amongst it and he'll be a great player for years to come."
