Kyle Walker has won 27 caps for England

Manchester City are close to completing the signing of Tottenham and England right-back Kyle Walker.

The 27-year-old is expected to have a medical and complete the transfer on Friday after the clubs agreed a deal on Wednesday worth up to £50m.

Walker, who joined Tottenham from Sheffield United in 2009, will not join up with Spurs for the start of their pre-season training on Friday.

Instead, he will travel with City on Monday to start their tour of the USA.

City boss Pep 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 made 183 Premier League appearances for Spurs and he has won 27 England caps.

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