Updated: YORK City’s long pursuit of prolific Blue Square Bet Premier marksman Jason Walker is finally over.

Manager Gary Mills finally got his man last night when the Luton Town striker put pen to paper on a two-year deal.

The Minstermen made repeated offers to last season’s beaten play-off finalists and an undisclosed fee has finally been agreed.

About securing Walker’s signature, a “delighted” Mills said: “It’s no secret that one of the first conversations I had with the chairman when I came here in October was ‘Can we go and sign Jason Walker?’ “I rate him very highly and we were the first to make inquiries about him but it triggered something off that resulted in him joining Luton.

“That was frustrating because I would have loved to have had him here last season but a lot of time and effort and superb support from the chairman means we have got him here now and I am delighted to have him in my squad.

“Sometimes when you want somebody like him, it’s not easy.”

Walker, 27, scored 17 goals last season despite being used sparingly by the Hatters following his autumn switch from Barrow.

In the previous campaign, he netted 21 times for the struggling Bluebirds and Mills is confident that Walker will boost the firepower of his side, who had the sixth- lowest goals for column in last season’s Blue Square Bet Premier.

The City chief said: “He will give us goals, which is something we needed to address after last season. He also has a great work ethic and a desire for the game.

“He’s a team player and somebody I have admired ever since I first saw him play for Barrow. Anybody who has played against him knows they are always in for a tough game.”

About the protracted transfer negotiations, Mills added: “We have had to pay a good fee for him, which shows the ambition of the club and the chairman. Good strikers don’t come cheaply and we have had to up our offers to eventually get him here.”

Mills would not comment on whether the capture of Walker will also weaken a potential promotion rival in Luton, but confessed: “They have signed another striker in Rushden’s Aaron O’Connor but, if I was them, I wouldn’t have wanted to lose Jason.

“I don’t sign players to weaken other teams though. I bring people in to make us stronger and more positive in terms of our attacking play than last season.”

Not to be a winge master because on the whole I think we have signed a good player. But if you actually look at Walkers goal record in the BSP with Luton it isnt that great 4 goals in 20 matches (1 every 5). The plus side is that he did get just under 1 goal every 2 matches for Barrow who havent played at a bad standard (even BSP) so hopefully he turns in more of a ratio like that for York. Other plus sides are his experience and being a northern lad, hopefully it appeals to him more playing here than at Luton. I have a feeling he will take a few weeks to settle in but will be a good signing, I predict Reed will out score him this season mind. We all expect alot from Walker because we believe there to be some relatively large fee involved but lets not get on his back if he hasnt reached the heights we expect within a few weeks of the league kicking off!

Surely it looks like Purcell could be out on loan again and maybe its time to be saying goodbye to Constantine because he doesnt look like he will fit into Mills plan now!

It's not that I don't trust the Press reporting (*clears throat*) but tried to find confirmation on City website (not a thing) and Luton Town website where their latest news rolling banner is announcing that they have just signed Lawless from York City (???), and the date at the top of the page was 16.6.11. I wonder if they have two simultaneous websites? I still find it really hard to imagine that Luton would actually sell us anyone good. I do so hope I am wrong.

Because he had a clause in his contract allowing him to go if there was an offer over X for him. Haven't Luton also signed a striker in the last couple of weeks?

Official statement Mae by Luton Town FC, also on official Conference web site.....

Blue Square Bet Premier club Luton Town have responded to reports that striker Jason Walker has signed for league rivals York City.
 
Last week the Hatters received an offer from York for Walker and an acceptable transfer fee was proposed.
 
The 27-year-old was then given permission to speak to York. Walker confirmed that he would give manager Gary Brabin his decision after a few days' thought.
 
Subsequently the club found out via reports in York that Walker had already become a York player.
 
Walker sent Brabin a text message in the early hours of Friday morning stating that his family had struggled to settle in Bedfordshire and that he would like to sign for York.
 
This morning the two clubs agreed terms to allow Walker to sign for the Minstermen for an up-front fee of £60,000.
 
Walker will officially become a York player once the paperwork has been signed in the early part of next week. Until then, Walker officially remains a Luton Town player.
 
Brabin said: "I've always known that improving the forward line was the most important aspect of my efforts in the transfer market this summer.
 
"Jason's impending move to York has reinforced this and will give me a real opportunity to bring in a player to score the goals to fire us to promotion."

I think he will do well for you. Looked brilliant in his debut for us, scored and was dropped. Only got a run towards the end of the season and by then confidence had dipped and his finishing had very much deserted him. He will always give 100% and will harry the opposition backline when they are in possession. If he gets his shooting boots back should net twenty odd for you.

Given that he was struggling at Luton and of course that famous penalty; at 60k this looks good business for both sides.

Only question . . . those York fans that complained (minus any evidence) that Lawless was tapped up by Luton. How do they feel about your manager discussing the transfer prior to any offer even being made as documented in previous reports? Just curious.

Good luck Jason, but hopefully not against Luton!

Cheers, I hope he will be a great signing and will find his scoring boots quickly...

Not sure where you're coming from on the signings query though:

Lawless - outside of the transfer window, bids turned down but the player "somehow" made aware and then hands in transfer request, ends up going on a loophole loan deal, which is how Luton also signed Walker...

Walker - offers made during the transfer window and acceptable offer to both parties accepted. Walker knew we were interested last season...

It felt like Luton were "throwing their weight around" outside of the transfer window last season and unsettling players and then signing them on loan to buy offers, not outside of the rules but perhaps outside of the spirit of the rules. This seems pretty straight forward, where's the comparison?

We should not tar everyone by the antics of yobs or chairman. Certainly I would hate to be associated in any way with Douglas Craig. Our current chairman however shows he is well prepared to back his manager (not his banker) Something he has continued to do whenever we've generated income. Hopefully the income from the Football league is not too far away. Good positive start is necessary - we'll find out about the true Mills this coming season.

there's nothing wrong with publically stating that you have an interest in signing a players. Mills could bang on about wanting Leo Messi but it doesn't mean he's going to want to play for York.
something obviously wasn't right for Walker at Luton, whether it was the move south, lack of starts etc, but he'll no doubt get the number 9 shirt here and will be our 'main man' if you like.
lets not wrangle between Luton and York anymore. the play-off debacle is in the past, you got Lawless, we've signed Walker and McGurk didn't want to go in the end. lets take our rivalry on the pitch, but leave it there.

On a seperate note please please GM sign up Chris Carruthers.Why the delay?The lad gives 100%,is versatile and a natural left footer full of enthusiasm.Could do alot worse.

Yes, you're right. Richard Money put him straight in the team, he scored, albeit a scuff-in from a yard but played like a man on fire. Then he got dropped and when he came back he'd definitely mislaid his shooting boots. With a point to prove, and a bit of "love" like you describe he could well be a very, very good player and I do certainly wish him luck.

As for publically courting players you don't have permission to speak and there being nothing wrong with it . . . all I can say is just watch this site if it becomes even just rumoured that Luton are interested in one of your better players!

Anyway, it's looking like a very interesting season ahead and yes let's renew our rivalry on the pitch!

But then as usual with Luton it's always someone else's fault.

Robert, the article as it appears today is (as it says) updated. When it appeared last night it was a mere paragraph with no picture. Also at the time, there had been nothing official from either club on their websites, twitter or facebook feeds. Usually that happens before the Press cottons on to the news, hence my comment.

He will always give 100% and will harry the opposition backline when they are in possession. If he gets his shooting boots back should net twenty odd for you.

Given that he was struggling at Luton and of course that famous penalty; at 60k this looks good business for both sides.

Only question . . . those York fans that complained (minus any evidence) that Lawless was tapped up by Luton. How do they feel about your manager discussing the transfer prior to any offer even being made as documented in previous reports? Just curious.

Good luck Jason, but hopefully not against Luton!

Luton will be close to the top again come the end of next season. But money is becoming tight there now after two fruitless attempts to get up ove the last two season's. The club spent quite a amount of money last term and need to claw some back.

It was simply the dosh up front by City that made Luton sell. They need it and don't be kidded by 6000 gates. Their over heads are very large.

Both Luton and ourselves will be in a tussle with other ex league clubs to get up this time around.

Fleetwood, not for me.

York were discussing a player they had not made an offer for . . .
What's wrong with stating you would love to bring a player to a club ? Why did McGurk state he wanted to join Luton when city had not even been approached. If you want to ask questions start looking closer to home. Walker is now our player, get over it.
You're missing the point my friend. I was just pointing out that after all the outrage on here previously it's something that goes on and in this case it's been blatant.

I think your fellow fans are right though. Luton and York shouldn't be at loggerheads over this. You got a good player and we got a good price that made selling worthwhile. Everyone should be happy :-)

And for those that think money is tight at Luton, think again, we're better off than we have been for quite a number of years.

But with you strengthening, us doing the same, Fleetwood trying to emulate Crawley and a few others this is going to be one tough season. We should all be Looking forward to this one.
