Walker joins on loan

Striker arrives at Stadium MK...

31 January 2019

MK Dons have made Middlesbrough striker Stephen Walker their second signing of Deadline Day.

The England Under-19 international has joined the Dons on a loan deal until the end of the 2018/19 season.

He becomes Paul Tisdale’s fourth capture of the January Transfer Window, following Russell Martin, David Wheeler and Jake Hesketh through the door at Stadium MK.

"Stephen is a young, talented attacking player," manager Paul Tisdale told mkdons.com.

"We've spoken in-depth with Middlesbrough about him and they are more than happy for us to take him on loan so he can continue his development with us.

"We are looking for some more energy and drive in our front line and Stephen will do that. I think he will be a very exciting addition to our squad for the remainder of the season."

Walker made his senior debut for Middlesbrough earlier this season, providing an assist in a Carabao Cup victory over Notts County. For Boro’s Under-23s and Under-18s teams, he has found the net seven times in 17 appearances.

The pacy striker, who recently signed a new four-and-a-half year contract with the Teeside club, has a terrific goal record for England, having scored nine goals in 15 games across the Under-17s, Under-18s and Under-19s age groups.
