League One leaders Peterborough United have signed Scottish midfielder Jamie Walker on a season's loan from Wigan.

Walker scored 43 goals in 208 games for Hearts, but has made just one league start since joining Wigan in January.

Posh boss Steve Evans said: "Jamie is an outstanding attacking midfielder who can play as a number 10 or a striker."

The lateness of his signing means Walker, 25, is unlikely to feature as Posh bid to keep up their 100% league start against Doncaster on Saturday.
