Shane Walker has headed overseas to continue his pro career after signing with Al-Ittihad in Bahrain following three seasons at Leicester Riders.
The England international – who competed at this year’s Commonwealth Games – helped the Riders to consecutive trebles in the BBL, but has now departed ahead of the 2018-19 season.
Walker graduated from Loyola University in 2012 before turning pro in Greece before spells in Cyprus, Holland, Morocco and France with a short stint at Plymouth Raiders in between.
The 30-year-old joined the Riders in 2015 – going on to win eight trophies in three seasons – and now returns overseas.
Al-Ittihad finished 8th in the Bahrain Premier League last season with a 12-12 record, missing out on the playoffs.
