Huge defender joins Vale on loan

Following criticism of the Vale’s defence in failing to keep a clean sheet since November, the Valiants have added a towering new face on loan.

Vale have agreed a one month deal for Crystal Palace’s Ryan Inniss, a towering six foot five inches tall centre-half.

Inniss is highly rated by Palace and has captained the likes of Luke Shaw at England U17 level.

The 19 year-old has had previous spells on loan with Cheltenham Town, Luton Town, Gillingham and Yeovil.

Vale’s defence has been under increasing criticism because of its inability to keep clean sheets. Following more defensive lapses in the 3-1 defeat to Bristol City, manager Rob Page suggested that he would make changes.

Those changes could potentially see Inniss handed his Vale debut in the grudge match against local rivals Walsall on Saturday.
