LONDON — As England were gearing up for their opening match against Russia, Kyle Walker was imagining bikinis, booze and partying in
Ibiza — judging by a text he sent to Playboy model Carla Howe.

Howe, a lingerie model, texted Walker: “U in Ibiza?” to which the Tottenham rightback replied “I wish”, according to the Daily Star.

The text message exchange took place two days before England’s 1-1 draw against Russia while he was at the team hotel in Chantilly, France.

A close friend of Howe, in revealing this,
added: “Carla found out Kyle has a girlfriend so now she ignores his messages as she doesn’t want it to go any further.”

Walker is in a long-term relationship with Annie Kilner and the pair have a child.

Howe and Walker met at a Penthouse party and they have been communicating through WhatsApp.

A Tottenham spokesman told The Daily Mail: “No one who saw Kyle’s performances for
England could doubt his commitment.”

Highly-paid Walker and Co were lambasted for their performances in France especially after the Three Lions were knocked out by minnows
