Player Profile

Watford-born walker made his name in goal for Tottenham Hotspur, where he came through the youth team before going on to make 260 league appearances for Spurs. Walker spent over a decade at White Hart Lane before handing in a transfer request in September 2000 after losing his first-team place to Neil Sullivan.

Walker remained at Spurs until the end of the season before City snapped him up for £2.5 million in July 2001. His aim was to get regular first team football and try and get back into the England squad for the 2002 World Cup, but relegation with the Foxes in his first season at the club ended any hopes.

Still, he remained at the Walkers Stadium and helped Leicester win promotion back to the Premier League at the first attempt, in turn earning his first England call-up in six years in May 2003. But he struggled in goal the following season, summed up when he conceded five goals against Aston Villa in 18 minutes in January 2004. Foxes fans will remember the supporter than ran on to the pitch to confront him following his poor display. It dented his confidence and he conceded a bizarre own goal against Bolton Wanderers the following month. It got worse when he suffered relegation with the Foxes for a second time but remained at the club the following season before being released due to the club not being able to afford to offer him a new deal.

Walker went on to sign for Bolton Wanderers but didn't play a single league game in his three-year stint at the club. He had his contract terminated by mutual consent and since went on to try his hand at management, being appointed manager of Conference North side Bishop Stortford in March 2011.
