Chris Walker
Back in the NRL

After much speculation, Chris Walker has decided to join the Parramatta Eels for 2011. Walker will join other new recruits Carl Webb, Reni Maitua, Casey McGuire and coach Stephen Kearney.

Neighbours Penrith had shown considerable interest in Walker but the ex-Catalans outside back elected for a one-year deal at Parramatta with an option for a second season.

He had been playing with Les Catalans in the English Super League in 2010 but will return to Sydney for next season.

The former Queensland State of Origin winger has played with five NRL clubs in a career blighted by a number of off-field incidents.

Will the Eels be announcing another signing later in the week?
