Brad Walker would extend his stay with Wrexham if his loan spell is a success, report The Leader.

The 22-year-old midfielder has arrived on a temporary deal from Crewe Alexandra, who are managed by former Wrexham defender Dave Artell, and will be at The Racecourse until January.

Having been told he is not part of Artell’s plans and is out of contract at the end of the season, Walker was eager to move on to play games and he jumped at the chance to join Wrexham after being approached by manager Sam Ricketts.

“I got the phone call off the gaffer saying he wanted to bring me in so I was delighted to come here,” said Walker.

“I played 40 games for Crewe last season but I wasn’t part of the plans this year. I needed to play games and what a club to come to.

“There is no better way to get in the shop window by playing games, especially at a good level, so I am delighted.”

When asked if he would like to stay beyond January, Walker added: “Definitely, obviously if it was okay with Crewe and everything got done.”
