Kyle Walker wants to win trophies after joining Manchester City from Tottenham in a deal that could be worth £50 million.

Walker, 27, was confirmed as City's third signing of the summer on Friday and he is keen to make up for eight trophy-less years in North London.

"With the size of the club, we need to go on and pick up silverware, get trophies left, right and centre, and hopefully that can add to my CV because I haven't won that many things so far in my career," Walker told CityTV.

"Tottenham was a great club, it helped me to get me to where I am now. I've learned a lot, especially under the current manager [Mauricio Pochettino], he's been fantastic with me.

"But sometimes your path isn't there and you have to move on and what a place to come and take a different path. Just win trophies -- that's all I'm about and all I want to do.

"Hopefully we win titles, that's what I've come here for; the most important thing is actually winning a title."

Walker said he felt a mixture of excitement and nerves about playing under Pep Guardiola.

"What a manager to work under," Walker added. "I'm excited, and a little bit nervous, I'm not going to lie.

"It's the next chapter in my career where I can go on and learn. I think I'm at a good age now where I'm probably at the peak of my career and I just want to try and be the best player I can be.

"He's very positive, says I'm going to fit into his style of play really well. The main thing that we've both said is just winning trophies. It's a massive club, a great set of players in the team and we need to go out and win things."

Walker is expected to head out to the U.S. with the rest of City's squad on Monday for their preseason tour and could face his old Tottenham colleagues in Nashville later this month.
