Walker on Move to Vale Park

17 January 2017

Tyler Walker is Port Vale’s latest signing in this winter transfer window as Michael Brown puts his own touches to the squad he inherited over Christmas.

Walker spoke exclusively to Valiant PlayerHD about the move: “I am delighted to be here and I can’t wait to start,” the 20-year old said.


Walker makes the move to Vale Park from Nottingham Forest for the rest of the season, and will be looking to help out on the pitch as much as possible: “I will be looking to help the team, to get some points on the board and score some goals as well.”


The Nottingham Forest man has been out on loan already this year at Stevenage scoring three times in eight appearances in the league, and looks back on his time at Broadhall Way as much needed experience: “I really enjoyed my time at Stevenage, and I am thankful for the opportunity they gave me. I just enjoyed playing games really and getting some football under my belt.”


He is not short of League One experience either as he was part of the Burton Albion team that saw them promoted to the Championship last year: “It was awesome to have played for them last season, it was a really good experience. I have very fond memories, especially on the day of promotion.”


Tyler, son of Des Walker, also has experience in the Championship with parent club Nottingham Forest: “It was really good getting the experience in the Championship. Now I just want to get some games in and do as well as possible for Port Vale,” he said.


Walker is definitely not short of confidence on the pitch and will be looking to impress his new fans immediately, as he gives them a taster as to what his game is about: “I look to run in behind defences and use as much link up play as possible. Obviously I also love scoring goals.”
