The 21-year-old broke through the first team in the Tottenham squad this year and his performance earned him rave reviews from his footballing colleagues, garnering him a place in the PFA Team of the Year on top of the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Walker's international career also took off to an excellent start this season, winning the Man of the Match on his first full England international cap against Sweden in November.
In an interview after winning the award, Walker admitted that he was surprised that he won the award, especially given the fact that defenders tend to be overlooked on such occasions.
He said: "I was a bit surprised because defenders don't normally get these awards and get the limelight as much as the centre-forwards.
"But I try to get forward as much as I can so I can get the limelight too but it is a team game and my teammates have helped me out massively in getting this award and I owe it to them as well.
"If you look at the people I was up against, it is a great honour to get the award and hopefully there is more to come. It is always an honour to be selected by the people you play against and, like I say, hopefully I can get a few more of these and some medals with Tottenham along the way.
"I have had a mad three years in my football career so far, I have made my England debut and also had a little boy, so who knows what is round the corner. It has been a mad but positive year.
The former Sheffield United trainee thanked manager Harry Redknapp for the chance to play in the first team for Spurs.
He added: "Harry [Redknapp] gave me the opportunity to play this season in a great team like Tottenham, he has put his trust in me, and that is what I wanted to do since I joined Tottenham and I have to say a big thanks to him for believing in me.
With the season coming to an end, Spurs remain outside the Champions League spots in fifth place. Walker believes that the north London side can rally and beat Newcastle and Chelsea to the fourth and final spot.
"We have got four important games left this season, we need maximum points to try and get into the Champions League," he said, "It has been a great season for me personally, what I wanted to do ever since I joined Tottenham and hopefully there are many more years to come of this."
