Crewe Alexandra have announced the signing of midfielder Brad Walker on a 2-year deal, which has been confirmed in the last hour. He arrives for an undisclosed fee from Hartlepool despite his contract expiring with the Pools, the fee coming because he is under the age of 24 and United offered him a new deal.

Walker, 21, has spent the whole of his career to date at Hartlepool United where he made his debut away at Rochdale on the opening day of the 2013/14 season and has made at least 20 league appearances in each season since, making 36 in his debut season. He has scored 10 career goals, all in the league, but only 2 in the last couple of seasons.
