Kyle Walker has lavished praise on Manchester City teammate Phil Foden, branding the midfielder "a kid that wants to learn".

Foden only turned 18 in May, but the England Under-19 international has already made 11 first-team appearances for the Citizens - including a start in Sunday's 2-0 win over Chelsea in the Community Shield.

Walker has claimed that Foden's attitude - as well as his talent - is what sets him apart from the rest.

"Phil has trained with us all last year. What a talent he is. He is a kid that wants to learn, which is rare these days, because you see a lot of the kids coming through that have got a little bit of a chip on their shoulder," Walker told reporters.

"But it's full credit to him and probably his family as well for what he does and he puts in the work as well. He wants to learn, so it is a pleasure to play with him."

Foden made five Premier League appearances for City during the 2017-18 campaign.
