Could Christian Walton be the next goalkeeper to catch the eye of England boss Gareth Southgate?

The 22-year-old is on loan at Sky Bet Championship side Wigan from Premier League Brighton for the second successive season and has been a mainstay in manager Paul Cook's side.

Walton has kept 17 clean sheets in 36 matches in 2018 - more than any other goalkeeper in England's top four divisions.

He first joined Wigan in July 2017 on a season-long loan and kept 19 clean sheets - the highest in League One - as the Latics won the title and promotion to the Championship.

Walton re-joined Wigan in June, once again on a season-long loan, and has made a strong start to the campaign, providing five shutouts in 14 matches.

He has already received international recognition, having been capped by England at U19, U20 and U21 level.
