The 19-year-old, who joined Spurs during the summer transfer window in a double deal with Kyle Naughton was loaned back to his former club for the whole season.
Blades boss Kevin Blackwell wants to keep Walker at the club, rather than send him to the tournament which starts in Egypt on September 24.
