Spurs full-backs commit their futures to Tottenham

Rose and Walker sign long-term deals with the north London club

Tottenham have re-affirmed their faith in young full-backs Danny Rose and Kyle Walker by handing the pair contract extensions today.

Rose, who turned 21 on Saturday, started the final four games of last season at left-back before taking part in the European Under-21 Championships, and he has extended his deal by one year until 2015.

Meanwhile, Walker played 15 Premier League games during a loan spell at Aston Villa in the second half of the 2010/11 campaign.

The right-back, who turned 21 in May, has also been included in the last two senior England squads – and he has now committed himself to Tottenham until 2016.

Both players are expected to be part of Harry Redknapp’s first-team squad this season, particularly when they have the advantage of being ‘Aged 21 and under’ – meaning they do not have to be listed in the official 25-man roster on September 1.
