Port Vale make statement of intent with Inniss signing

Port Vale have made arguably their most important signing of the summer with the loan capture of defender Ryan Inniss.

Inniss was hugely impressive while on loan at Vale Park last season and Vale have made no secret of their desire to bring the defender back to Vale Park. After a protracted summer chase, the club have confirmed that Inniss has agreed a season-long loan deal.

The defender is now likely to be paired with fellow newcomer Remie Streete in a new-look Port Vale central defensive partnership.

Manager Rob Page has revamped the side over the summer with the additions of Ben Purkiss, Sam Kelly, Anthony Grant, Sam Foley, Uche Ikpeazu and Remie Streete. However, many fans will view the Inniss capture as the icing on the cake.
