Kyle Walker posts Instagram video announcing change in Spurs shirt number

Is this a football social media first?!

Kyle Walker announced he has changed his Spurs shirt number on Instagram on Saturday afternoon – with a video showing the England full back announcing the change.

For comparison, last week, the first anyone knew of Antonio Valencia giving up the Manchester United number 7 shirt, was when the Community Shield team sheets were announced.

Walker took the opportunity to inform his Instagram followers the day before Tottenham’s first game of the Premier League season against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
