Former Port Vale midfielder Anthony Griffiths is training with his former side following his recovery from a hip operation, according to the Stoke Sentinel.
The combative midfielder played 237 games in three different spells at Vale Park but he was released at the end of the 2013-14 campaign.
He first joined the Valiants in August 2008 after leaving Doncaster Rovers and he went onto play 182 games before joining Leyton Orient in May 2012.
Griffiths played 28 games for Orient during the 2012-13 campaign, but he ended the season back at Vale Park helping the side regain League One status.
He resigned for the Vale on a permanent contract at the start of last season and played 45 games in all competitions as Micky Adams’ men finished ninth.
The Montserrat international started his career with Doncaster in November 2005, making eight appearances in a three-year spell.
He had loan spells with Oxford, Darlington, Stafford and Halifax before becoming a fans favourite at Port Vale.
‘Griff’ as he is affectionately known by Vale fans, played most of last season with his hip injury and Adams is happy to let the 27-year-old train with his side whilst he looks for a new club.
But it is unlikely that he will be re-joining the League One side with Adams adding three central midfielders to his squad over the summer in the form of Steven Jennings, Michael O’Connor and Michael Brown.
