Kennedy Joins On Loan From Cardiff City

Port Vale have completed the loan signing of Cardiff City winger Matthew Kennedy.

The 21-year-old has penned a month-long deal at Vale Park and, subject to international clearance, should be eligible to play in Tuesday evening’s Sky Bet League One clash with Doncaster Rovers.

A Scotland under-21 international, Kennedy is a skilful winger who first broke through the ranks at Kilmarnock before transferring to Everton in 2012.

He enjoyed time on loan at Tranmere Rovers, MK Dons and Hibs before moving to Cardiff last summer.

Kennedy will wear the number nine shirt during his loan spell at Vale Park.

Robinson Makes Vale Park Switch

Port Vale manager Rob Page has secured his second signing of the day with the addition of striker Theo Robinson.

The 27-year-old has joined the Club on a contract which will run until the end of the season following his departure from Motherwell and could make his debut against former side Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday evening, subject to international clearance.

Robinson started his career at Watford and has enjoyed permanent spells at Huddersfield Town, Millwall, at the Keepmoat Stadium, Derby County and, most recently, at Fir Park.

Though he was born in Birmingham, the forward is a Jamaican international and has made five appearances for his country.
