Page: Striker will return to Blackburn

Port Vale manager Rob Page says that the club have no interest in extending Jordan Slew’s loan spell at the club.

The news means that Slew’s loan spell at the club will meander to a disappointing end after a promising start.

Slew was brought to the club by Page’s predecessor Micky Adams, who managed the player at Sheffield United and arranged to take the striker on loan until the New Year.

Slew began his stay at Vale Park with two goals in his first three appearances, but he fell out of favour after the arrival of Dany N’Guessan and has not made a first-team appearance since October.

After Vale added Achille Campion, Alex Nimely and N’Guessan to their forward options, Slew has been out of the first-team picture and Page has admitted that he won’t be seeking to extend the loan.

Page told the media: “Being honest probably not. I have had a chat with the lad and moving forward it [extending the loan]  is something that we will probably not be doing.

“That’s why he has not featured a lot and he has not been on the bench. All I can do is be honest with players.”
