'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Scunthorpe set to clinch Walker signing

Out-of-favour midfielder Josh Walker looks set to join League One outfit Scunthorpe United.

The 22 year-old midfielder signed for Watford in 2010 under Malky Mackay but quickly found himself behind the likes of John Eustace, Stephen McGinn, Jordon Mutch and Ross Jenkins in the pecking order.

Walker joined the club on free transfer for Middlesbrough before taking in loan spells with Stevenage and Northampton Town.

According to various sources the former England youth cap has been on trial at Glanford Park for the past three weeks and is close to sealing a permanent move.

Speaking to This is Scunthorpe, Iron boss Alan Knill says a deal is close:

'He fits into what we like. He's a really good footballer, technically as good as anything you'll come across, and he's only 22.

'He played in the first team at Middlesbrough when he was 18.

'He did really well, but got an injury and though he's had some loan moves and done well, when he went back to Middlesbrough it was to a change of manager.'

Watford will apparently demand a nominal fee for the central midfielder but with his contract up at the end of the campaign, the 'Orns aren't a position of strength.
