28 August 2020

Latest Sky Blues recruit, Tyler Walker is looking forward to getting back out on the pitch and scoring goals after agreeing his move from Nottingham Forest.

The 23-year-old put pen-to-paper on a deal with the Sky Blues and is ‘buzzing’ to start working with his new team mates ahead of the new campaign.

“I’m buzzing to get everything done and get it over the line finally and hopefully now we can look forward to the season and get going.

“I think this is the next step in my career, I’m buzzing like I said to be at Coventry and in the Championship and that is the next step for me and hopefully it will be a good move for both of us.”

Last season Walker spent time on loan with Lincoln City, scoring 16 goals before being recalled by Nottingham Forest during the January window.

Having had other loan spells during his career, Walker is now looking forward to having a new club to call ‘home’ and settle in with Mark Robins side.

“I’ve been on loan a few times, but now I want to settle in and have somewhere to call home and hopefully I can do that at Coventry.

“I’ve spoken to the Manager which was good, and everything now looks ready to go.

“I played against Coventry last season and they played some really good football and I’m looking forward to being part of that.”

Having spoken to the Gaffer, the striker revealed that he was key to him coming to Coventry from Forest.

“The Gaffer is one of the main reasons why I decided to sign here and I’m looking forward to working with him, learning from him and hopefully I can take what he says and put it into my game.

“I can’t wait to be back scoring goals, it’s what I do and I’m looking forward to getting back out there and playing some games.

“I like to score goals and make runs in behind and I try and link play as well and a bit of everything really, but the main thing is putting the ball in the back of the net.”

When asked his aims for the new season, Tyler was in no doubt that he is aiming to hit that magic 20 mark.

“I’m a striker and I want a minimum of 20 goals and as a team we want to finish as high as we can and hopefully we can do that.”
