Deserving of his own thread, joins on a year long loan from Brighton. They clearly rate him quite highly as no intention of selling and this will be his 3rd full season loan.

We just needed someone to come in ahead of Leutwiler as didn't feel he was up to be our starting keeper so at least we've got someone. Not ideal that our current first choice keeper is only on loan as it stands but it is what it is. Mowbray quite telling in his comment about Walton's height and wanting to rectify the obvious weaknesses we had last season with balls into our box. Feels quite like for like with Raya in a lot of respects, same age, similar experience and bags of potential.

He's also straight onto the massive list which is a good start: "It’s been a quick process. I heard the news that Rovers were interested and jumped at the chance to join such a big club, a club that’s going in the right direction."
