​Kyle Walker has dropped a massive hint over his rumoured Tottenham Hotspur departure 

The right-back took to his personal Instagram account to put together a montage of posts that end up spelling out the words ‘Thank You’ in giant letters in what looks to be confirmation that his Spurs career is at an end, speculation increasing over a possible move away from north London.

Premier League rivals Manchester City and Chelsea, as well as Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich, have all been touted as possible summer destinations for Walker, and Walker’s own decision to post such a statement on one of his official social media accounts certainly lends weight to him leaving his current employers.

The 26-year-old has been in and out of the Spurs’ starting lineup in the final few weeks of the campaign, and the last of his 229 appearances for the club came as a late substitute in the 2-1 triumph over Manchester United on 15th May.

Walker was at the centre of a transfer tussle the last time he switched clubs back in 2009. The then-Sheffield United full-back was on the verge of completing a move to Everton before Spurs swooped in and nicked him from under the Toffees’ noses for around £5m, and he has been a vital component of their senior squad ever since.

City had been thought to be the frontrunners for Walker’s signature as Pep Gurdiola plotted an overhaul of his full-back options at the Etihad stadium, and Walker’s supposed arrival would have offset the departure of stalwart Pablo Zabaleta and fellow defender Bacary Sagna.

However, Premier League champions Chelsea and German giants Bayern are now also in the mix for Walker and, if he is indeed to leave Spurs, chairman Daniel Levy will be licking his lips at the prospect of a bidding war between the trio as they bump Walker’s asking price above and beyond its current value.

It now remains to be seen just where Walker’s future lies but, judging by his social media post, it seems that he will not be part of the Tottenham set up under manager Mauricio Pochettino next term.

Walker has gone to become the number one choice at right full-back for the senior England national team too, and was called up to the latest squad to take on Scotland and France in June’s upcoming international fixture list before the football season officially ends.
