The Sentinel newspaper reports that Port Vale re looking to add another player to their squad ahead of this month’s loan deadline.
Vale currently have Louis Dodds, Scott Quigley, Idris Kanu and Mitchell Clark on loan. Any new addition will take the club’s loan total to five players.
Neil Aspin has expressed a desire to bring back Kyle Howkins who had a successful spell on loan last season before being injured, but it is unclear if the West Brom defender will be the Vale’s target.
Vale may also look to loan out players before the deadline. Currently Dior Angus, Mike Calveley, Harry Benns, Dan Turner, Rob Lainton and Brendon Daniels are loaned out and the club would be open for loan offers for transfer-listed duo Tyrone Barnett and Joe Davis
The loan transfer deadline closes on Friday and will not re-open until January.
