Walters Deal Sealed

Last updated : 04 February 2004 By Andy Beill
The Birkenhead-born striker put pen to paper on a 2½-year contract and will reacquaint himself with the Tigers team-mates he was on loan with last season in his first training session tomorrow. He'll compete with Danny Allsopp, Ben Burgess and Jamie Forrester for the two forward positions.

Rumours had circulated that Walters' arrival would signal the end for Forrester, but City chairman Adam Pearson says there's no truth in them.

He said: "Jamie isn't going anywhere. He's our player and that's how we want it to stay. He's still an important part of Peter's plans.
"As for Grimsby, some people have looked at the situation and jumped to entirely the wrong conclusion. It's absolute nonsense."
