Port Vale set to sign striker JJ Hooper

Manager Rob Page has told the media that the club expect to sign striker JJ Hooper.

Hooper was set to sign for Cheltenham Town before turning down the move at the last minute and he now looks set to sign for Port Vale.

Hooper scored twenty goals in 29 appearances for Havant and Waterlooville last season. He will add competition to the Vale forward line.

The Valiants lost Tom Pope and Ben Williamson in the summer, leaving Achille Campion and Louis Dodds as the only remaining forwards. But in a busy summer period, the side have since added AJ Leitch-Smith and Uche Ikpeazu and promoted youngster Enoch Andoh to their forward ranks.
