Dan Jones player profile
Port Vale FC signed former Salford City defender Dan Jones in June 2021 as the club’s fifth signing of the summer.
Left-sided Jones can play as full-back and centre-half and also boasts a powerful long-throw.
Talking about the latest addition to his squad, Manager Darrell Clarke said: “I’ve always liked Dan to be honest, things didn’t work out quite well with him at Salford, but he did well on loan at Harrogate and he knows the division well.
“He’s got a great throw in his armoury, which will be good to have has an option for us and can be important to have at our level. Dan’s a great defender but he’s also good going forward and delivering crosses, he’ll give us options in a number of positions defensively. He’s a very good acquisition for us.”
A possessor of a huge long throw, Jones was a regular at the start of the 2021-22 season before a suspension and injuries saw him drop out of the squad.
However, he bounced back in his second season by forcing his way into the back three and putting on some eye-catching displays and he signed a new two-year contract in May 2023.
