Walker, who scored six times in 29 appearances for Town, returned to England in December following a six-month stint at Swedish club Ostersunds FK.

He spent the first three weeks of the year training with Gateshead, but turned down a contract offer before accepting a trial at the New Lawn.

Forest Green manager Ady Pennock said: “Jason brings something different to the table.

“He’s got good touch and awareness, he knows where the goal is and just needs to get match fit.

“Jason was offered more money to go elsewhere and the ball is in his court to earn a new contract for next season.”

Walker made his Rovers debut as a late substitute during the 3-0 win over Chester on Saturday.
