Port Vale set to sign ex-Manchester United defender



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.

Port Vale boss Rob Page told the Stoke Sentinel, “his loan is up now, so on Monday we will have some news and I am confident it will be good news”.

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.
