- Midfielder made 28 league appearances in promotion season
- Walker: "It's been a pleasure to play for your club"
The 27-year-old midfielder joined the Valiants in July 2021 and made 45 Appearances across all competitions during his time at Vale Park.
Walker, who was part of Darrell Clarke’s play-off winning squad, featured 28 times in the league for the Vale during that 21/22 season, finding the back of the net once.
Talking about the departure, Director of Football David Flitcroft said:
“Brad is a player that wants game time and wants minutes, he was a massive part of our promotion season and he wants to be a part of a team on a Saturday afternoon but with competition in the same position here at Vale, he hasn’t been getting the game time he wants due to the form of other players.
“He has chosen a fantastic club in Tranmere Rovers, somewhere that’s got the ambitions to try and get out of the league they’re in and what they have done is found a player that can help them to do that.”
Speaking to the club website, Brad said: “Firstly, I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the fans that have supported myself and my family since I joined Vale.
“It has been an absolute pleasure to play for your club and the experience of last season is something I’ll never forget.
“I’d like to thank Carol and Kevin for giving me the opportunity to pull on the Vale shirt and all of the lads for being so welcoming and making my time at the club special, it’s been a time of my career where I’ll hold fond memories.
“Thank you for your support, Up The Vale”
The club would like to go on record to thank Brad for his time spent with us and wish him all the best for the future.
The transfer is subject to EFL and FA Approval.
