Danny Whitehead player profile
Port Vale FC signed former Salford City and Macclesfield Town midfielder Danny Whitehead on a two year contract in August 2020.
An energetic player who can play in a number of positions, Whitehead had played under Port Vale manager John Askey while at Macclesfield Town.
“He’s very energetic, a good footballer – he’ll be another good addition to an already strong midfield,” said Manager John Askey sold the official Port Vale website.
“He’ll have to compete with the rest of the players, he’s a solid player who has proved himself at this level – in recent years he’s had two promotions so hopefully he can get in the side and keep his place.”
“We tried to get Danny in before but obviously he was under contract at Salford. He’s agreed a mutual termination as he had a year left on his contract.”
Whitehead has made 224 senior appearances prior to joining the Valiants, scoring 23 goals in that time. He made his Port Vale debut on the opening day of the 2020-21 season in a 2-1 Carabao Cup win over Scunthorpe United and scored his first goal in the second round defeat to Fleetwood.
He was placed on the transfer list in May 2021 and in October 2021 he moved on loan to Altrincham of the National League.
