After impressing while on trial with the club, Jake Taylor first joined the Valiants on loan in August 2019. He forced his way into the first-team with a string of fine performances. His form prompted Port Vale to make a permanent transfer bid in the January 2020 window but it was rejected. In October, the midfielder joined League Two rivals Scunthorpe United on loan but the move came to an end in the New Year as Forest prepared to sell the youngster.
