Veteran goalkeeper Jimmy Walker has signed for Tottenham.

The 36-year-old left West Ham at the end of last season and will act as cover for the north London club, whose first-choice keeper is Heurelho Gomes.

Walker, who spent five years at Upton Park, began his career at Notts County before joining Walsall in 1993 where he made 476 appearances.

Brazilian Gomes is currently working his way back to full fitness, with Carlo Cudicini standing in.

Tottenham had recalled David Button from a loan spell at League Two side Crewe as cover for the injured Gomes.


But Button returned to Crewe on Tuesday where he will remain on loan until January.

Gomes injured his thigh in Spurs' 5-1 Premier League win over Hull at the KC Stadium on 19 August.
