Manchester City close in on Walker

Manchester City are closing in on the signing of Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker, according to the Daily Star.

The Citizens have been strongly linked with the full-back since the season ended last month and are on the verge of completing a deal with the transfer fee in the region of £40m.

Walker has been at White Hart Lane since signing from Sheffield United in the summer of 2009 and since returning from a loan spell back with them in 2010 has racked up two hundred and twenty-eight appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals.

Despite losing his starting place to Kieran Trippier towards the end of the recently closed campaign, the twenty-seven year old England international was named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year for a second time having already got the nod in 2012 when he was also named Young Player of the Year.
