Gordon Taylor on PFA Young Player of the Year nominee: Kyle Walker

"He has done extremely well. He has his roots with Sheffield United and has been out on loan at Northampton, Aston Villa, QPR and has then got his place in the Tottenham side, and is now looking to get a place in the England team as well. It is a real tribute to him for the way he has been prepared to go out and put experience to good use. He has been a crucial part of what for Tottenham, for the most part of the season, has been a real success story. He has shown his quality going forward and defending.

"The position of full-back is no longer about just staying back and being big and strong. It is about movement, flexibility and the ability to use all the width of the field. It is something the defence finds hard to cope with. It is an important part of game - of course not to forget the defensive duties - but to have that attacking ability Kyle has shown. It has been a really attractive part of Tottenham when they have been at their best."
