Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker is ready to reignite his career in North London after making a full recovery from abdominal and foot injuries.

The England international missed nine months of 2014 after undergoing surgery and did not feature for Spurs until December of last term.

Walker was still able to make 15 appearances in the Premier League for Tottenham but a foot injury curtailed his campaign again in April, forcing him to miss the last two months of the season

The January arrival of DeAndre Yedlin and summer signing of Kieran Trippier from Burnley sees increased competition for Walker's place in the Tottenham team.

And the 25 year old is well aware his place is under threat but is confident that he can have an injury-free campaign.

"It's been a good start," he told the Tottenham official website. "Last season was difficult but it's been great to get back out there and prove what I can do.

"This is probably the biggest season of my career so far.

"Things have been up and down for me and now I need a consistent season."

Walker's absence for his club has seen him slip down the pecking order for England, where Nathaniel Clyne and Phil Jones are now preferred by Roy Hodgson.

"Hopefully this will be the season I get back up there and show the lads here and everyone at Tottenham Hotspur what I can do again," the former Sheffield United right-back added.

"It's not been the easiest with the injuries but that's all behind me now and I'm looking forward.

"I know I have to hit the ground running, I'm working hard and, fingers crossed, this will be the season everything falls back into place again."
