Highly-rated London Broncos fullback Alex Walker is a man in demand.
The 23-year-old is likely to be one of the most sought-after players whose contract expires at the end of this season. He has made an impressive start to life as a Super League player with the Broncos, and that form has not gone unnoticed.
League Express understands several Super League clubs in the North have expressed an interest to Walker and his management about a potential move for 2020 – just days after the window for clubs to speak to out-of-contract players opening. One of those clubs is believed to be Wakefield Trinity, who have expressed their interest in Walker to their management.
The Broncos are desperate to keep Walker and convince him his long-term future is with the club with whom he has made an eye-catching impact with since his debut for the club all the way back in 2014. Walker has become a pivotal part of Danny Ward’s side, and is also a full international having been capped on four occasions by Scotland.
The fullback is seen by many as the jewel in the crown of a London junior setup that has produced a large contingent of the squad that not only got the Broncos promoted to Super League last season, but has kept them firmly in the mix for survival with the season approaching its halfway stage.
However, it now seems London face a fight to keep hold of the highly-rated Walker, with several clubs already preparing bids to lure him up the M1.
