Christian Walton joined Albion in 2013 after progressing through the youth ranks with Plymouth Argyle.
The keeper signed a new four-year deal with the club in 2014 and would go onto make his professional debut at just 18-years-old in a League Cup defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.
His Championship debut came a week later, keeping a clean sheet in a 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic. Appearances against Blackburn Rovers and Middlesbrough would follow that season, keeping another clean sheet against Boro.
In 2015, the now 25-year-old began his loan journey, going out for short spells with Bury and Plymouth Argyle, before spending half a season with then League Two Luton Town under former Albion man Nathan Jones, before returning to the Amex after Niki Maenpaa sustained an injury.
He had a short spell with Southend United towards the end of that campaign, but it was his time at Wigan Athletic he made a real name for himself in the EFL.
Two years with the Latics between 2017-19 saw him win promotion to the Championship from League One and help establish Paul Cook's side in the second-tier.
Tony Mowbray's Blackburn Rovers took the keeper on loan for the 2019/20 season, where he played every minute of Championship football for Rovers, as they finished 11th.
