Port Vale FC are reportedly close to signing midfielder Tom Conlon, the Sentinel reports.
Conlon played in the friendly against Blackpool at the weekend. Manager Neil Aspin told the newspaper:
“I’ve been happy with what I’ve seen. Tom has been training with us for a week, he played in midweek and got 60 minutes against Blackpool. He’s not had a pre-season, but he has kept himself fit.
“He’s a local lad, so it’s even better that we can just get him in and have a look at him.”
22 year-old Conlon was born in Porthill and is a former Stoke City youth player.
