Walker signs on loan

Midfielder joins from Watford until January 5

Stevenage have signed versatile midfielder Josh Walker on loan from Watford until January 5.

Walker, 21, is eligible for tomorrow’s FA Cup Second Round clash with AFC Wimbledon and is likely to go straight into the squad for the trip to Kingsmeadow.

Walker joined the Hornets on a free transfer in the summer from fellow Championship side Middlesbrough but has since only made four substitute appearances for their first team.

Despite his lack of first-team experience at Boro and Watford, Walker has captained England at every age level from under-16 to under-20 and also skippered the Three Lions at last year’s under-20 World Cup in Egypt.
