Port Vale FC have offered three members of their youth team professional contacts for next season.
The trio are goalkeeper Ryan Boot, who has been offered a two-year deal; left-back Tom Morris who has been offered a 12-month contract and central defender Doug Price who has been offered a six-month deal.
Youth team coach Mick Ede told the Sentinel: “Ryan has great agility and his distribution is very good. He has to work on his concentration, but we have high hopes for him.
“Tom’s a cultured defender who is good on the ball. “He’s calm and his passing is good.
“And Dougie is the sort of lad who enjoys defending but, at 5ft 9in, he could do with growing a bit.”
