Brad Walker will return to parent club Shrewsbury Town while overcoming an injury picked up on loan at Wrexham.

Town's Brad Walker injured his hamstring on loan at Wrexham

The 23-year-old was one of boss Sam Ricketts' first signings in a busy January window, penning an 18-month deal from Crewe before being immediately loaned back to Wrexham, where he played under the Town boss.

Walker has been in good form for the National League high-fliers but was forced off during the early stages of Saturday's defeat against Leyton Orient with a hamstring injury.

The Racecourse club have suggested a recovery period of two to three weeks but Ricketts suggested the player's rehab at Sundorne Castle will determine whether he plays again this season.

Ricketts believes Walker will benefit from spending time with his Town team-mates ahead of next season.

The Town boss said: "We'll pull Brad back in and he'll do all his rehab here.

"It's disappointing for him that he's got injured, he's been in a real rich vein of form and playing very well.

"We'll get him back in, it's disappointing for him but it's good because we can get him in and around the building, meeting all the players.

"He has been here a couple of times already but to he'll have a sustained period of time here so he'll settle in well and we can start working him towards next season now with his fitness and everything we want to work on.

"At least he'll be around the building now now and when he gets fit will determined if and when he plays again next season."
