Port Vale manager Neil Aspin says Dior Angus and Mike Calveley will benefit from a loan spell at Nuneaton.
Nuneaton’s stadium was purchased by Vale owner Norman Smurthwaite this summer and this has clearly strengthened ties between the clubs although the spell has yet to be approved by the FA.
Aspin told the Sentinel: “Mike is not ready, he’s not played at a high standard of non-league football. The reason he is at the club is because he has a good attitude and he deserves to get a year where he can try to progress. But it would be wrong to put him in the first team because at the moment he isn’t ready for that.
“He deserves to have an opportunity at this club but he will need to go out and play games at a better level and then we can assess how he is going to do.
“Dior has played at a higher level of non- league football than Mike but again he needs to do more and gain more experience at a higher level before he is going to threaten in the first team.
