Man City Sign Spurs' Kyle Walker

Manchester City completed the signing of Kyle Walker from Tottenham Hotspur on Friday afternoon.
The right-back has signed a five-year contract at the Etihad and will wear the number two shirt.

It is understood that the two clubs agreed an initial N20.9b (£50m) fee, with potential add-ons that could see the total rise to N22.16b (£53m).

The Transfer from Tottenham eclipses 2014 N20.9b fee PSG paid for Chelsea’s David Luiz as the 27-year-old becomes most expensive English player of all time.
“I am thrilled to be signing for City and can’t wait to get started,” Walker told City's official website.

“Pep Guardiola is one of the most respected managers in the world and I feel he can help me take my game to a new level.”

Txiki Begiristain, City's director of football, said: “Kyle is a fine full-back, one capable of producing quality at both ends of the pitch.

“We’ve followed his progress at Tottenham and have been really impressed by how he has developed. He is now one of the best right-backs in the Premier League and justifiably an England regular.

“I am sure he will be a success at Manchester City this season and beyond,” he added
