Walker, who issued a grovelling apology last night, now faces a potential huge fine from club bosses for ignoring health and social distancing guidelines.
The defender split from his long-term girlfriend Annie Kilner earlier this year after we revealed he had got model Lauryn Goodman pregnant.
A source said: “Kyle has hit rock bottom with his behaviour and his manager will be furious, and rightly so.”
Walker partied with escort Louise McNamara, 21, and a 24-year-old Brazilian call girl after he and a male pal invited them to his £8,000-a-month rented luxury apartment in Hale, Cheshire.
Louise said she arrived by taxi at around 10.30pm on Tuesday, the night before Walker issued his plea in an interview for everyone to stay at home.
The single mum says the player, who she took snaps of stripped to his undies, said his name was “Kai”.
Louise, who is studying criminology at Manchester Metropolitan University, said: “I work with an agency in Manchester. I got a message from my boss saying a high-profile client was looking for somebody classy.
“I got a cab from Manchester to the address and a driver picked me up outside and took me to the gates of his apartment.
“Then his friend came out and met me.
“There was another girl in the car too.”
Walker tried to keep his identity secret but after the girls went for a cigarette on the balcony, the other told Louise “Kai” was a “soccer player”.
Louise said: “I didn’t know who he was at the time.
“But I took a few photos of him.”
The men agreed to pay the girls £2,200 in cash before moving through to the bedroom, where Walker, 29, pulled out some gold-coloured Shine condoms.
Louise and the other girl left the apartment at around 2am on Wednesday.
Later that day, Walker told fans in an interview: “Stay indoors, keep washing your hands, keep following the protocols and just protect the NHS.
“It’s been tough, but first and foremost, we have to think about other people’s health and protecting the elderly and family members that can spread it.”
Days earlier, he posted a video message on Instagram for his 1.7million followers in which he encouraged fans to abide by the advice.
He put out similar Twitter messages.
Louise added: “Kyle really should know better.
“On the one hand he’s inviting strangers round to his house for sex, and the next day he’s lecturing everyone on the need to stay safe.
“He’s a hypocrite and putting people at risk.”
His behaviour is also likely to infuriate England manager Gareth Southgate.
In a statement last night, Walker said: “I want to take this opportunity to issue a public apology for the choices I made last week.
“I understand that my position as a professional footballer brings the responsibility of being a role model.
“As such, I want to apologise to my family, friends, football club, supporters and the public for letting them down.
“There are heroes out there making a vital difference to society at the moment, and I have been keen to help support and highlight their amazing sacrifices and life-saving work over the past week. My actions are in direct contrast to what I should have been doing regarding the lockdown.”
Manchester City also later issued a statement which said: “We are disappointed to hear the allegations, note Kyle’s swift statement and apology, and will be conducting an internal disciplinary procedure in the coming days.”
KYLE Walker is not the first Premier League star to get in trouble during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish admitted going to a teammate’s flat hours after urging fans: “Stay home, protect the NHS, save lives.”
Grealish, 24, was fined two weeks’ wages by Villa which went to a Birmingham charity.
Everton striker Oumar Niasse, 29, was labelled “embarrassing” by cops who stopped his car with a pal and two girls inside in Manchester.
It came days after Boris Johnson said non-essential travel must stop.
Last month Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount, 21, had a kickabout with pal Declan Rice after teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi was diagnosed with coronavirus.
He was reminded of his responsibilities after ignoring orders to self-isolate for 14 days.
Spurs midfielder Dele Alli, 23, was charged by the FA with misconduct in February after posting a video in which he wore a mask and appeared to mock an Asian man at an airport.
