OFFICIAL: Walker secures permanent Scunthorpe deal

The 23 year-old central midfielder was set to join Alan Knill's side in January on a free ut FIFA stepped in to prevent the deal which would have seen Walker play for more than two clubs this season.

Former Middlesbrough trainee Walker will now link up with the Lincolnshire-based outfit this summer on a one-year contract.

A Malky Mackay signing, Walker never made a league start for the 'Orns after arriving in August 2010 from Teesside.

Walker spent last season on loan at Stevenage and Northampton Town before spending part of this campaign with Stevenage before a loan switch to Glandford Park.

Good luck at Scunthorpe Josh!
