Walton Returns to Brighton

1 September 2015

Keeper Christian Walton has returned to Brighton & Hove Albion

On loan Brighton & Hove Albion goalkeeper Christian Walton is returning to his parent club, after injury curtailed his loan spell with the Shakers

The England under-21 international has also been forced to pull out of Gareth Southgate's squad for the matches against USA at Preston on Thursday and in Norway next Monday.

Walton played six times for Bury, despite suffering an underlying groin injury, and now will return to the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre to work with Albion's medical staff.

Albion boss Chris Hughton said, "Christian is back with us for his treatment on a groin problem, and we felt it was right to bring him back here so he can play some matches with our under-21s as part of his rehabilitation. The view then would be to loan him back out at some time in the autumn."

Manager David Flitcroft will be commenting on this news following this evenings game at Accrington Stanley

Our thanks and best wishes are extended to Christian and we hope him a speedy recovery from injury.
