Walker's switch to City is imminent

England full-back Kyle Walker is set for a £50 million (Dh236m) move to Manchester City from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur, according to British media reports.

The Guardian is also reporting this development, pointing out that the "package includes £3m of add-ons and takes Walker beyond David Luiz on the list of defenders and above Raheem Sterling in terms of players from England".

But the Walker deal will still fall short of that figure - unless City can bag a load of silverware in the right-back's time with the club.

City have agreed to pay £50m for Walker. Someone like Walker, who is not only young but has adopted to an equally sapping style of play under Pochettino, could instantly transform the team's balance on the right.

Former Arsenal striker Wright has taken to Twitter to send a message to the 27-year-old right-back, and so has ex-Tottenham defender Graham Roberts.

Both players have signed improved deals that will see their contracts with the Terriers run until June 30 2020.

His loan spells at Northampton, QPR and Aston Villa saw him develop physically, and when he became a regular at Spurs his improvement was rapid, underlined by his two appearances in the PFA Team of the Year (2011-12 and 2016-17) and his Young Player of the Year award (2012).

City seemed confident of tying down the youngster to a lucrative, long-term deal back in March, however in a u-turn of events he is now looking likely to exit the club.

Talks have been held over a £22m move for Porto's Ricardo Pereira, but progress has been slow due to a dispute over who represents the player, while Bayer Leverkusen's Benjamin Henrichs has also been scouted.

"It's the next chapter in my career where I can go on and learn".

"I believe in happiness - that's why I made the decision to come here".

Speaking to the club's website, he said: "I am thrilled to be signing for City and can't wait to get started".

City were heavily linked with Dani Alves of Juventus.
