The 29-year-old left Bootham Crescent in the summer after indicating he would not sign a new deal and has been linked with a number of clubs including the Cod Army, Rotherham and Burton.

Walker, who helped fire the Minstermen back into the Football League in 2011/12, has been a long-time target of the Highbury Stadium club, who have tried to sign him on several occasions over the last few years.

And the striker would be keen on a move to the west coast.

"I leave things like that to my agent, but there are a few clubs interested so we'll see what happens," Walker said.

"I'm definitely ready for a new challenge and I just want to play at the highest level possible and do the best I can."

Alexander has had a busy summer as he shapes his squad for an assault on League Two next term, having already signed six players, including Walker's former York team-mate Matty Blair.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
