Villa borrowing Kyle - Houllier

BY foxsports • January 6, 2011

The 20-year-old full-back has just returned to Spurs following a highly successful loan spell with Championship leaders Queens Park Rangers. QPR wanted him to stay at Loftus Road, but he is now on his way to Villa Park. Walker will spend the rest of the season on loan at Villa, as Houllier looks to bolster his squad after seeing his side drop into the Premier League relegation zone following their 1-0 defeat to Sunderland. Houllier confirmed that the club had signed Walker on loan until the end of the season at a press conference following Villa's latest defeat. "We were looking for full-backs and Kyle Walker is [arriving] on loan from Tottenham, I can confirm that," Houllier told reporters.
