The 20-year-old, a graduate of the club's academy, has made six senior appearances since the turn of the year with manager Gareth Southgate having to turn to his youngsters because of injuries and suspensions.

Born in Newcastle, central midfielder Walker made his senior debut as a substitute at Fulham in the final game of the 2005-06 season under former boss Steve McClaren.

The England Under-19 international has also had loan spells with Aberdeen and Bournemouth.
