Here's one I missed earlier, because I spend too much time following football all over the world and I miss stuff like the 2011 PFA Awards outside of the Premier League. Tottenham Hotspur loanee Kyle Naughton, who has spent this season playing for Leicester City in the nPower Championship, was named to the PFA Team of the Season in that division. Naughton has played 31 games at fullback for Leicester this season, scoring five goals.

This is the second time that Naughton has been named to the PFA Team of the Season in the Championship, as he was named to the team in 2008-09,  while playing for Sheffield United, in the season before he was purchased by Spurs.

It's interesting to note that Naughton has had a solid season, since it seems like most of the CFC community is very much on the Kyle Walker bandwagon. Next year, I don't think there's any reason that these two can't compete for, at the very least, the second spot on the depth chart at right back. Harry Redknapp and Daniel Levy have admitted that they will be cutting the squad size next year, and they can start by ditching Alan Hutton. Not only Walker, but also Naughton is probably a better option.
