English international defender Kyle Walker has completed his transfer to Manchester City from title rivals Tottenham Hotspurs after signing a five-year deal with the Citizens earlier today.
Right-back Walker, 27, moves to City for an initial fee of £45m plus add ons that could take the deal to £50m thus potentially making him the most expensive English player ever.

Delighted with the move, Walker, who joined Tottenham from Sheffield United in 2009, said: “I am thrilled to be signing for City and can’t wait to get started,”
“Pep Guardiola is one of the most respected managers in the world.” he stated further.
Walker, who has made 183 Premier League appearances, also added: “I feel he can help me take my game to a new level.”
Kyle Walker becomes Manchester City’s third signing of the summer after Bernardo Silva and Ederson. He has been handed the number two jersey ahead of the club’s American tour starting from Monday.
