Kyle Walker Keen to Finish At Blades
Sheffield United Return
29-year-old Walker is keen on ending his career with Sheffield United.
The talented full-back has made 100 appearances in all competitions for City since making a £45 million move from Tottenham.
However, the former Aston Villa and QPR loanee is keen on finishing his career with his boyhood club.
Walker began his career with Sheffield United; however, he made just a handful of appearances for the Blades before signing for Spurs in July 2009.
While still a youngster at White Hart Lane, Walker found first-team chances limited and, therefore, opted for loan moves to QPR, Aston Villa and a return to Bramall Lane.
Upon his return to his boyhood club, Walker made 28 appearances in all competitions and became a fan-favourite.
As a result, the 29-year-old has declared that he is keen on ending his career at the club that fist put hope in him.
“I know the manager there,” he said to Sky Sports. “I’m a big Sheffield United fan so I can not wait to get back.
“I’ve said to the people that represent me that I would love to finish back at Sheffield United. That is where I started, they gave me a chance in football.
“You never know, they may not want me, we could be in different stages of our career. You never know what is going to happen, but Chris [Wilder] if you want to take me I’ll come back soon.”
Turning focus back on to his current situation, Walker admitted that Manchester City will have underachieved if they fail to win the Champions League during his time at the Etihad.
Last season the Sky Blues won the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup; however, Pep Guardiola’s side were knocked out of the Champions League by Tottenham in the quarter-finals.
“We’re not getting any younger and I want to win the champions league before I finish my career,” he said to Sky Sports.
“I feel I’m at the right club to do that and if we don’t get as far as we should do, it feels like we’ve underachieved.”
