Tottenham full-back Kieran Trippier marked Alexis Sanchez "out of the game" in the final north London derby at White Hart Lane and has the total faith of his team-mates, according to Ben Davies.

Trippier came through Manchester City's youth system, selling him to Burnley in 2012 without ever really giving him a chance in the first team.

The England right-back strongly disagrees with Pochettino's idea that he can not play two games within a week and was incensed when left out of Tottenham's starting line-up for the FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea and then the north London derby.

Walker has been tentatively linked with clubs such as Manchester City and Manchester United over the past few months, but a report from Independent.co.uk claims that Walker himself wants to push through a move this summer due to his relationship with manager Mauricio Pochettino. It should be seen whether Tottenham will sanction Walker's sale and potential suitors will have to deal with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who is a tough negotiator when it comes to transfers.

How much would he cost?

He's notched up the most assists of any Premier League defender this season and City desperately need that kind of dynamism and flair from their defensive flanks. Walker has been a key part of an impressive Spurs side this season and his signing will be a big coup for City. Walker may not be everybody's cup of tea, but there are few better options on the market.
