Ben Whitfield player profile:
Young winger Ben Whitfield signed on loan from Bournemouth on the eve of the 2017-18 season. He scored his first goal in a 3-2 home defeat to Wycombe Wanderers in August.
Whitfield soon forged a regular starting place but his season was disrupted by an injury in October. He recovered to retake his place in the starting eleven and enjoyed a purple patch during the festive period. After a bright start to his Vale loan spell the youngster was subject of a transfer bid by Vale. Terms could not be agreed but he did eventually stay until the end of the season after a loan deal was reached in early January.
In August 2018, Port Vale agreed to sign the player on a permanent two-year contract.
