Coventry City have confirmed the signing of Tyler Walker, who joins the club on an undisclosed fee from Nottingham Forest.
The 23-year-old has signed a three-year contract with the Sky Blues.
Tyler Walker Joins Coventry City
Chance to Prove Himself in the Championship
A move to Coventry offers Walker the chance to prove himself in the Championship on a regular basis.
Walker failed to nail down a regular starting spot during his time with Nottingham Fores, making just 45 appearances since his debut in 2015. Instead, he spent much of his time out on loan. The 23-year-old enjoyed six separate spells out on loan during his time with the Reds.
It was his last two that saw him become recognised as a prolific striker. The 2018/19 season saw him join Mansfield Town on a season-long loan, and he scored 26 goals in 52 appearances for the Stags.
He then made the step up to League One last season, joining Lincoln City. Walker initially joined the Imps on a season-long loan; however, after a first half of the season that saw him net 16 goals in 34 appearances, Walker returned to the City Ground in January.
What Was Said?
Speaking about his new signing, Coventry boss Mark Robins praised Walker’s exceptional goalscoring record.
“We’re delighted to announce the signing of Tyler,” he said to the official Coventry City website.
“He is a terrific talent, who we have been interested in for the last couple of years.
“As his goalscoring record shows, he’s a striker with great ability who really tests and stretches defences and is a fantastic signing for the Club.
“We’re really pleased to get this significant transfer completed, and are looking forward to working with him.”
He is the fifth player to join Coventry this summer, as Robins looks to build a squad capable of competing in the Championship.
