Wrexham have completed the signing of Crewe Alexandra midfielder Brad Walker on loan until January 2019, the club confirmed yesterday afternoon.

Walker, 22, joined the Alex during the 2017 Summer transfer window from his first club Hartlepool United where he made over 100 league appearances and started last season in the team alongside Michael Raynes and Eddie Nolan at centre-back in a back 3 before moving into his preferred midfield position as the opening months of the season progressed but found his game-time limited as the season went on.

He moves to Wrexham having only made one substitute appearance for the Alex this season, in the game at Colchester last week, and joins former Alex youngsters Chris Holroyd and Mark Carrington at the Welsh club that have a connection to the Alex.

What are the Dragons getting from the signing of Walker?

Brad is a 6ft central midfielder who can also play as a centre-back who hasn’t really had a proper opportunity to have a run of games in his preferred position. As far as Wrexham are concerned, it’ll be interesting to see which position he’ll play in starting with tomorrow’s game against Aldershot (from what I’ve seen it’ll be at the back) and whether he plays in one position over the other or not.
