Port Vale loanee Mitch Clark has departed his parent club Aston Villa, the player has tweeted.
Clark has been a significant success at Vale Park while on loan and manager John Askey has expressed an interest in signing the player on a permanent basis.
The 20 year-old made a single senior appearance for Villa but has been a regular in the Valiants defence this season.
Since joining the club in August, Clark has made 45 appearances for Vale and is expected to line-up in the club’s final game of the season against Bury.
The youngster progressed through the Villa youth ranks and has earned Wales U19 International caps.
