Kyle Walker sets his sights on trophy haul after Manchester City move


By Staff Reporter

Kyle Walker is targeting silverware with Manchester City after joining from Tottenham in a deal that has made him one of the most expensive defenders ever.

It is understood England ace Walker, 27, has cost City an initial £45m, with an additional £5m if various add-ons are met.

Walker has been a key figure in a Spurs team that has finished above City in each of the past two seasons, yet he did not win a collective honour in his eight years in the capital, a fact he wants to remedy in his new surroundings.

"With the size of the club, we need to go on and pick up silverware, get trophies left, right and centre, and hopefully that can add to my CV because I haven't won that much," Walker said.

"Tottenham was a great club, it helped me get to where I am now. I've learned a lot, especially under (Mauricio Pochettino), he's been fantastic.

"But sometimes you have to move on and what a place to come and take a different path. Just win trophies -that's all I want to do. Hopefully we win titles; the most important thing is winning a title."
