MIDFIELDER Bradley Walker has joined Wrexham on a six-month loan deal from League Two side Crewe Alexandra.

The 22-year-old started his professional football career in 2013 with Hartlepool United in the Football League

During his time with Pools, Walker won League Two apprentice of the year in 2014 and he played 107 games until his transfer in the summer of 2017, signing a two-year contract with Crewe after the two sides agreed a compensation package.

Walker began last season in the Crewe team and although he featured less after the turn of the year, he still made 33 appearances in 2017-18, but has only had one run-out this term.

“I’m really pleased to be coming in to Wrexham on-loan until January. It’s a fantastic club and I can’t wait to get started," Walker, who could be involved this weekend against Aldershot, told Wrexham's official website.

“Hopefully I can get myself involved over the weekend or on Tuesday and play my part in Wrexham’s push for league football.”

Reds boss Sam Ricketts said: “Bradley is an excellent young player who can play in a number of midfield roles. He is accomplished and has played a lot of league football.

“I’m looking forward to working with him and I hope he really enjoys his time at Wrexham.”
