Sky Sports News HQ understands that Manchester City are hoping to exploit Walker's diminished amount of games and are confident of signing him from Tottenham in the coming weeks.
Walker ended up missing some big matches towards the end of the season, particularly the final north London derby against Arsenal at White Hart Lane, and speculation has been rife for a while that he's off.
"He said: "(It's not a distraction) - not at all.
"I am an England player now and I am fully focused on a massive game on Saturday".
We get the best out of each other and even if Tripps plays or I play, we've said privately to each other that we will each other on.
Asked whether he could give an indication on where he would be next season, Walker then added: "No, no indication at all". I played centre-half and he played right-back I believe, and it was a friendly rivalry.
I think at this point the only question remaining is where Walker will be sold, and how much Daniel Levy will extract from the buying club.
I mean, it would be easy for him to come out and do the non-denial-denial with the usual platitudes of I'm-still-a-Tottenham-player and My-contract-goes-for-another-few-years and You-never-know-what-the-future-holds-but-I-expect-to-be-at-Spurs.
"We always help each other, no matter who we play against, and it will be no different with England".
"We're putting on our England shirt now and whoever gets the nod I am sure the other one will be fully behind it. We get on really well".
KYLE WALKER insists England will have no fear when they take on Scotland in Glasgow on Saturday and says Gareth Southgate's side have got to silence the hostile home crowd with their performance.
