Man City defender Walker: Record price-tag 'out of my hands'

Kyle Walker says he does not feel the burden of a record-fee.

Manchester City paid Tottenham £50m to bring Walker to the Etihad, making him the most expensive defender of all-time.

But the England international believes that tag won't bring him any extra pressure next season.

"It's out of my hands. Whatever the two clubs decided to pay, that's nothing to do with me," Walker told Sky Sports.

"I've just got to concentrate on what got me here - keep playing the football I was playing at Tottenham, keep wanting to learn, keep being enthusiastic and showing the desire on the field to go and win trophies, which is what I've come here for."
