Non-contract defender Christian Hanson could be handed a chance to impress from the start for the Valiants.
The former Middlesbrough defender has been with the club since December, but he has made just two substitute appearances so far for the club.
But Hanson has reportedly impressed in Vale’s friendly and reserve fixtures and Foyle wants to give the centre-half a chance to earn a full-time deal with the club.
The 24 year-old has league experience thanks to loan spells with Cambridge United and Torquay United.
