Nottingham Forest striker Tyler Walker has joined League Two side Stevenage on a season-long loan, it was announced on Wednesday.

Striker Walker, who is the son of 59 capped England centre-back Des Walker, has been sent out on loan for a second time.

Forest announced the loan deal on deadline day on their official Twitter account and website.

The 19-year-old, who made his debut for Forest in March 2015, has played 22 times for the club but only scored one league goal against Brentford in April 2015,

He was sent on loan to Burton for the final months last season, and in six appearances scored one goal to help the Brewers secure promotion to the Championship. He is yet to play in the 2016-17 campaign.

Walker made his debut for the England Under-20s in September 2015 and scored a brace in a 5-0 win over the Czech Republic, and has played three further times for the national team.

He is currently well down the pecking order at Forest, with the likes of Apostolos Vellios, Ben Osborn and Britt Assombalonga being the main strikers used by Philippe Montanier.

They are also close to signing Portuguese winger Lica as they aim to wrap up their third signing in 24 hours, following the arrivals of Nicolao Dumitru and Mustapha Carayol.

In other Nottingham Forest transfer news, their Championship rivals are weighing up bid to sign a Nottingham Forest attacker.
