Walker: Impressing at Villa
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp remains adamant that he will not sell Kyle Walker to Aston Villa.
A call-up to England's squad for Saturday's Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales and next week's friendly against Ghana has reflected the attack-minded 20-year-old's progress during his loan at Villa.
It has been reported as a result that Gerard Houllier is planning to offer Redknapp £10m for the right-back at the end of the season as the Frenchman attempts to improve Villa's fortunes.
But Redknapp has always insisted that Walker, who has also been loaned to QPR this season, will return to Tottenham and rival Alan Hutton and Vedran Corluka for a place in the first team.
Spurs' manager said: "Kyle will be back here for sure, he's still learning and got miles to learn but he is a talent, a real prospect.
"He has got all the attributes to be an England right-back of the future. He'll come back here and push for a place."
