Walker, who moves from Sunderland, began his coaching career with Peterborough in 2013 and had spells with Gillingham and Lincoln City before joining The Black Cats this summer to work alongside new boss Jack Ross.

Ross, of course, was one of the favourites for the vacant hotseat at Portman Road, before Paul Hurst was appointed and subsequently lasted just a handful of games in charge.

As a player, Walker made more than 450 appearances for Walsall while also turning out for West Ham United and Colchester United among other clubs.

It was with the U’s that Walker played under Paul Lambert, making 16 appearances in 2008/09. He is the fourth addition to Lambert’s backroom staff along with Stuart Taylor, Jim Henry and Matt Gill.
