Kyle Walker ruled out for an additional four weeks

Kyle Walker hasn't featured for Tottenham Hotspur since Spurs' 0-0 draw against Burnley at Turf Moor on April 5, and he won't be back on the pitch for Spurs anytime soon. The club tweeted and released a statement indicating that Walker will be out of action for an additional four weeks with a foot injury.

With only five matches left in the season, this pretty much means that Walker is done for the year. Which may not necessarily be a bad thing. It's possible that Walker might be ready in time for Spurs' finale against Everton at Goodison Park, but why rush him back from a foot injury at the tail end of the season when you can just rest him and make sure he properly recovers in the off-season?

This means that again we're likely to have a revolving door of right-backs for the last five games of the season. Will we see Vlad Chiriches? Eric Dier? DeAndre Yedlin? Who knows, but it won't be Kyle Walker.
