On loan midfielder Sam Togwell has been named Port Vale’s player of the month for January.
The Crystal Palace player has become a firm crowd favourite and an automatic starter in the Vale Park engineroom.
Togwell told the local press: “I think scoring three goals tipped the fans’ award for me, but it is not just me, the whole team has played well over the last couple of months.”
The player has a year left on his contract at Selhurst Park, but he has not totally ruled out a switch to Vale Park.
“I haven’t thought about it [a permanent move]. I just want to get the season out of the way and then see what lies ahead after that. I have settled down here now and my fitness levels are good, which has been helped by playing regular first-team football” Togwell added.
