Port Vale have strengthened their squad with the signing of 19 year-old Fulham defender Jack Grimmer on a month’s loan.
[col grid=”2-1 first”]Vale are low on numbers in defence with Richard Duffy and Dan Jones injured and youngster Joe Davis on loan. The Valiants’ defensive performance was widely criticised on Sunday after Vale let a two goal lead slip against League Two side Plymouth.
Grimmer, who can play in the centre-half or full-back positions is the club’s first loan signing of the season. The young Scottish defender started his career at Aberdeen before moving to Fulham in 2012 for a fee of around £200,000.
Grimmer made his Aberdeen debut in 2010 when aged just 16 years and 13 days he became the club’s youngest-ever player.
The Fulham website notes that Grimmer captained the Fulham youth team to Dallas Cup victory, that he can play in defence or midfield and is known as a vocal player on the pitch.[/col]
