Wilder: Man City fullback Walker has place at Sheffield Utd

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has told Manchester City fullback Kyle Walker there's a spot for him in his squad.

Walker claims he would like to end his career back at his beloved Blades having spent 12 years with his boyhood side before leaving to join Tottenham in 2009.

“Kyle's a Sheffield boy," said the Blades manager. “I tried to tap him up when we played City but he said he's got a another couple of years playing there.

“He's one I would take and I think the world of him. I'm sure we'll be able to find a role for him when he decides to leave Manchester.

"He's a top player and he's already said he wants to finish what has been a brilliant career back at Sheffield United. Don't count against it.

“He's got my number and he knows he can phone me anytime.

“He's still a top performer in the best league in the world. He's welcome back here anytime."
