Knott delighted after Vale loan spell

Midfielder Billy Knott said he had “enjoyed every bit” of his time with Port Vale and would now consider his future after taking a holiday.

Knott joined on loan from Sunderland in January and has been a huge success. After an impressive end to his Vale spell, the midfielder was given a free transfer by his parent club at the end of the season and the Valiants have offered his a contract. Knott has indicated that he would favour a move to the Potteries but has to weigh up all offers put to him.

I have enjoyed every bit of it. I can’t thank everyone enough, it has been great to be involved in the club this season…

The midfielder told the Sentinel: “I have enjoyed every bit of it. I can’t thank everyone enough, it has been great to be involved in the club this season.

“I will go away with my family for a break and then sit down with my agent and see what we have on the table, and see where we go from there.”

However, Knott also suggested that he would be happy with a move to Vale even if bigger clubs were interested because the midfielder wants regular football. He added: “I want to play every week, but you have to earn the right to play. I feel myself that I can play in the Championship. If you are not going to play every week then you have to consider that.”

And Knott also paid tribute to manager Micky Adams commenting: “He took a risk on me at this level, a level I had never played before. He put me in, stuck with me when results didn’t go our way, and has helped me through it. He has been massive for me, as have Mark Grew and Rob Page and all the staff. I feel I have proved them right for taking that gamble on me.”
