Crewe have signed midfielder Simon Walton on loan from Championship club Plymouth.

The 21-year-old will spend the remainder of the campaign at Gresty Road and goes straight into the Alex squad for their Johnstone`s Paint Trophy tie against Stockport on Tuesday evening.

Walton began his career as a trainee at Leeds before moving to Charlton in a £500,000 deal in 2006.

After failing to make an impression at The Valley he was loaned out to Ipswich and Cardiff before joining QPR for £200,000 in the summer of 2007. He made just one start for the London club before completing a loan switch to Hull.

Plymouth signed Walton last summer for an undisclosed fee and has made 14 appearances for Argyle. He had another loan spell at Blackpool towards the end of last season.
