Port Vale sign Burton Albion midfielder Nathan Ferguson

Port Vale have announced the signing of Burton Albion midfielder Nathan Ferguson on a one-year deal.

Ferguson signed for Burton on a two and a half year deal in December 2015 after a number of other clubs also expressed an interest in the then-Grays Athletic midfielder.

A press release states:

We are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder, Nathan Ferguson on a one year-deal, with the option of a further year.

The 20 year-old becomes the 13th signing under manager Bruno Ribeiro, having joined the Valiants from Championship side, Burton Albion.

Ferguson joined Burton in December of 2015, from Ryman Premier League side Grays Athletic and became a regular in the under-21 side.

Nathan, who was predominantly a centre-midfielder during his time at Burton , spent the last few weeks of the 2015/16 season, on loan at Dartford , playing seven times for the Non-League side, scoring one goal.

Ferguson will wear the number 12 shirt this season.

The midfielder will now link up with his new manager and his new team mates as he joins in with preparations for the start of the new League One season.
