York City paid out a straight fee for striker Jason Walker according to Luton Town director Stephen Browne.

“He was there or thereabouts. But he was exciting when he got the ball and was prepared to have a crack” – Stephen Browne

The 27-year-old marksman has joined the Minstermen in a reported £60,000 deal after scoring six times in 29 appearances for Luton.

Immediately prior to that he netted eleven goals in 18 games at Barrow until a £45,000 fee took him to Kenilworth Road.

Walker crucially missed from the spot during a penalty shoot-out against AFC Wimbledon in the play-off final at Eastlands last month. But Browne was still very sorry to see him leaving the club.

“Personally I was disappointed. I know he was pretty distraught after Eastlands,” Browne told Luton Today. “It would have been nice to see him put that ghost to bed. But he said he would prefer to go back up north so hence the move.

“There’s no spread payments or anything like that,” he continued. “Luck hadn’t quite been on his side when he got his chance, especially under Brabs [Gary Brabin]. He was there or thereabouts. But he was exciting when he got the ball and was prepared to have a crack.”
