Man City sign Kyle Walker for £45m

Kyle Walker signs for City

Manchester City have completed the signing of Tottenham and England right-back Kyle Walker for an initial £45m on a five-year deal.

Walker made 183 Premier League appearances in eight seasons at Spurs and has won 27 England caps.

The deal for the defender is worth £50m, including £5m of add-ons.

“I am thrilled to be signing for City and can’t wait to get started,” said Walker. “Pep Guardiola is one of the most respected managers in the world.”

He added: “I feel he can help me take my game to a new level.”

Walker, who will wear the number two shirt, is expected to travel with City on Monday for their tour of the USA.

City boss Guardiola released three full-backs at the end of last season, including both right-sided players – Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna.

He missed out on the signing of free agent Dani Alves, with the Brazilian joining Paris St-Germain on Wednesday.

Walker, selected in the 2016-17 Premier League team of the year, is City’s third signing of the summer, after the arrivals of midfielder Bernardo Silva and goalkeeper Ederson Moraes.
