WALKER JOINS COLCHESTER UNITED ON LOAN

Sam Walker has today (Monday) joined Colchester United on loan until 27 April.

The 21-year-old goalkeeper, who joined the club from Millwall as a schoolboy, recently returned to Stamford Bridge following a loan spell with Bristol Rovers, where he featured regularly throughout the first half of the season.

He will link up with Chelsea team-mate Billy Clifford at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, after the midfielder joined Colchester on loan last Friday.
