Crewe Alexandra midfielder Brad Walker has joined National League side Wrexham on loan until January 7 2019.

The 22-year-old will link up with Sam Ricketts’ side and be available for selection on Saturday for their home contest with Aldershot Town.

The Dragons are currently in second place in the National League after seven games, having won four, drawn two and lost one.

Walker joined Crewe in July 2017 from Hartlepool on a two-year-deal for an undisclosed fee after Pools were relegated from the EFL.

He made 33 appearances for the Alex last season, scoring twice, but has been allowed to move on for the short-term, having been limited to just one substitute appearance so far in 2018/19.
