Manchester City signs defender Kyle Walker from Tottenham

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester City signed defender Kyle Walker from Premier League rival Tottenham on Friday in a deal worth up to 50 million pounds ($65 million).

Full backs are a priority for City manager Pep Guardiola this offseason after releasing Pablo Zabaleta, Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy last month.

The 27-year-old Walker has been one of the Premier League's top right backs in recent years. The England international signed a five-year deal with City.
