Like many players Atlanta United has acquired, Walkes can play a variety of positions. He’s primarly a centerhalf, but can play defensive midfielder.
“Depth is hardest thing to build on an expansion team,” Eales said. “That’s why we’ve worked so hard, from starting with Charleston last year to (developing an) international loan system.
“We are trying to use everything we can to give ‘Tata’ the best squad he can have.”
Other players Atlanta United have acquired on loan include fullback Greg Garza (Tijuana) and Yamil Asad (Sarsfield).
