Stevenage Borough have completed the loan signing of Watford midfielder Josh Walker until January 5.
Walker has been limited to few opportunities at Vicarage Road this season and will be hoping to earn more game time at Broadhall Way.
Hornets manager Malky Mackay believes Walker will benefit from playing regular first-team football.
"Josh and I were both in agreement that several full 90 minutes' worth of League football is just what he needs right now," he told the club's official website.
"His time on the pitch has suffered due to the form of other players in the squad. It's five weeks for him at a very good standard."
