YORK City manager Gary Mills is targeting Barrow star striker Jason Walker after bolstering his squad last night with the loan signings of Ashley Chambers and Robbie Weir.

Striker Chambers, 20, has joined from Leicester City until January and is the youngest player ever to play for the Foxes having made his debut coming on as a substitute in a League Cup tie with Blackpool while still 15.

He has also represented England under-17s, 18s and 19s and spent loan spells with Wycombe and Grimsby last season.

Left-sided midfielder Weir, 21, arrives from Sunderland for a month after impressing and scoring a free-kick as a trialist in City’s 2-1 midweek reserve defeat against Middlesbrough’s academy.

He is a Northern Ireland under-21 international and could feature, along with Chambers, in tomorrow’s league clash with Wrexham while Mills has also declared an interest in Walker as he looks to bolster his attack with a natural marksman.

He has netted 11 times this season and reports in Barrow suggested City have already made a bid for the 26-year-old, who will be out of contract in the summer.

Fleetwood are also understood to be ready to double his wages and Mills said: “He is a player I rate and someone that I have looked at. He’s a goalscorer and the type of player I would like in my side.

“He’s somebody I have enquired about but Barrow obviously don’t want to lose him.”

Mills ran the rule over Sunderland’s Nathan Luscombe in Wednesday’s behind-closed-doors friendly.
