Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker has said that he is excited about the future of the club under new manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Villas-Boas was appointed as Harry Redknapp's replacement last week and Walker believes that the 34-year-old's arrival will help him improve as a player.

"As an attacking full-back, I'm excited to work with him," Walker told The Guardian. "He's going to give another dimension to my game. We've seen in training that you have to be on it 24:7. That's what the team needs to go further.

"If he does play 4-3-3, it will benefit me, showing what I can do further up the field and letting the winger worry about me.

"We're a totally different team to [Villas-Boas's last club] Chelsea and you don't judge someone by previous things that have happened. We need to take him in. It's a good bunch of lads here. There's no egos, nobody who is going to disturb the camp. He's going to give us a chance; we're going to give him a chance. Hopefully we'll gel and win trophies."

Walker scored twice in 47 appearances for Spurs last season.
