Young Danny Walker has been reportedly linked with a move across Lancashire to Wigan Warriors, after just two seasons with the Widnes Vikings.
Widnes’ young player of the year from 2017, Walker has a wealth of talent that will be scouted by several Super League clubs, given Widnes’ pending relegation.
Wigan are sitting pretty in second place in the Super League table but with big changes being made in the off-season, expect a big turnover in personnel. They have already been linked with a move for Salford’s Jackson Hastings, which would potentially include a Sam Powell move in the other direction, and with Thomas Leuluai nearing the end of his career, a replacement may soon be needed in the number 9 role.
Walker has been a shining star in a very dark sky for the Widnes club over the last year and at age 19, is standing up to test put in front of him, and would be an exciting signing for the Wigan club.
Obviously Wigan’s movements in the transfer window will be watched by all as they begin a new era under coaches Adrian Lam and Shaun Edwards, but surely this is one for Wigan fans to get excited about.
