MANCHESTER (AP):

Manchester City signed defender Kyle Walker from Premier League rival Tottenham on Friday in a deal worth up to PS50 million ($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.
