Ipswich Town defender Frederic Veseli has almost sealed a move on a permanent basis to Sky Bet League One outfit Port Vale, according to the Stoke Sentinel.
Veseli has impressed on-loan at Vale during the first half of the season and an announcement is expected in the coming days.
Despite making just one appearance in a 17 month stint at Ipswich, Veseli has made 15 appearances for the Vale this term and appears to have impressed manager Rob Page.
The versatile 22-year-old defender, who is equally adept at playing either right-back or centre-half, began his English career in the youth set-up at Manchester City, before moving onto Manchester United, where he was released at the conclusion of the 2012-2013 season.
Ex-Vale manager Micky Adams described Veseli as ‘quick’, along with having accomplished ‘ball playing qualities’. Veseli spent time on loan at Bury in the 2013-2014 campaign after being told by Mick McCarthy that he had no future at Portman Road.
Port Vale will hope the permanent addition of Veseli will bolster a defence that’s enjoying a decent vein of form.
Port Vale currently lie 8th in the table and will be looking to mount a play-off surge as the season enters its business end.
Vale will hope the addition of Veseli can be secured before their fixture away at in form Chesterfield on Saturday.
