Port Vale manager thinks stylish Vale can attract top youngsters

Port Vale manager John Askey says the team’s improved playing style can help the Valiants attract young Premier League talent to Vale Park.

The Vale’s style has been much improved in recent games under the stewardship of Askey and a trio of loanees from higher placed clubs – Mitch Clark, Kyle Howkins and Adam Crookes all started the last game.

I think the way that we play encourages teams to loan players out to us. The bigger boys want teams who get the ball down and play, so I think that will help in signing future players…

Askey thinks the club can attract further youngsters in the summer telling the local media: “I think the way that we play encourages teams to loan players out to us. The bigger boys want teams who get the ball down and play, so I think that will help in signing future players.”

However, several events will need to happen before Vale can approach the summer months with confidence. Askey himself is only contracted until the end of the season – although it is looking increasingly likely that the former Macclesfield manager will stay on after some impressive recent results. Vale also have to negotiate the hurdle of owner Norman Smurthwaite’s threat of administration – with Synectic Solutions the current preferred bidders and favourites to become new owners ahead of next season.

Askey has been pleased with the club’s recent style adding: “I think the performance was really good – we should have scored more goals but their goalkeeper played really well.

“But to perform as we have done in the last few games is full credit to the players because they have been under a lot of pressure. There is no bigger pressure than going out of the Football League.”
