Walton: I Don't Really Know the Situation
Thursday, 16th Dec 2021 09:59

Blues keeper Christian Walton says he not able to say anything regarding the situation with his loan at the present time with weekend reports suggesting parent club Brighton and Hove Albion could recall him in January in order to sell him to a Championship club.

Walton, 26, is on a season-long loan with the Blues but it is understood the Seagulls can bring him back in January should they choose to do so.

It had been expected that Walton would move to a Championship side in the summer before he was eventually reunited with his former Wigan boss Paul Cook at Portman Road in August.

Walton is out of contract next summer and January is Brighton’s final opportunity to cash-in on him before he can move on a free in the close season.

Town would almost certainly be interested in taking Walton on a permanent basis if it were possible.

Asked about the reports, Walton said: “I think that sort of thing is best left to the hierarchy within the clubs.

“I’ve nothing to say on that at the minute because I don’t really know my situation. All I do know is that I’m playing for Ipswich Town and I’m really enjoying my football here.

“I think my form’s been good but I don’t think that’s for me to talk about at this moment, after a 2-0 defeat at Barrow.

“As long as I can keep doing as much as I can for the team within games then hopefully it spirals and has a knock-on effect throughout the team.

“I will always want to be doing better and will continue to work hard and apply myself. This is a great football club to be playing for and I love playing for the club.

“This is a massive football club and any player within the divisions would want to come and play for Ipswich.

“You’ve seen the players that we’ve recruited in the summer from higher divisions and you can see from the support that we get how good the club is. I’m really enjoying my time here.”

He's one of the very few who is performing well. It would be a shame to lose him. Still he doesn't have to agree to a sale.

He has been excellent, we need to keep him, I can think of few others at the moment

Brighton can recall Walton but they can't sell him unless he agrees a contract with a new club. He might prefer to run down his contract rather than be sold in January & he might also get better offers from Championship clubs. Odds against him signing permanently at Town I think, especially with us languishing in mid table.

One of the few who actually looks decent. Pity his captain is useless,shame we cant send him back!

We must keep him , Bart transfer was big part of relegation , and our No 2 just does not look right!

Shut up Smithy you tit.

Walton has been one of the very few coming out of this season with credit.

That’s him gone then ….

As much as I like Holy, Walton is easily our best goalkeeper so if he wants to stay with us and the clubs can do a deal I would say yes to that.

He was one of the very few who played well against Barrow.

However, we really should appoint a new manager before signing players.

I trust Ashton to be doing everything he can to keep him

This season is a mess, so doesn’t matter who leaves.

BobbyBell added 13:37 - Dec 16
Why would he want to stay? All the promise of the new ITFC is quickly fading away.

Kirbmeister added 14:45 - Dec 16
Christ if I were him I’d be out at the first opportunity. Transferred to a Championship club? No brainier.

DifferentGravy added 14:55 - Dec 16
Be shame as generally played well.

On a side note....who is Kieran Mckenna?

Suffolkboy added 19:00 - Dec 16
We should NOT discount individuals genuinely enjoying being around ITFC ; it’s still a lovely Club ,though short on ‘on field ‘ success right now .,
Strikes as a sincere statement and it’d be a real declaration of faith if he stayed and we secured him !
