The Valiants reported back for pre-season training on the 1st July and boss Micky Adams accepted the Scouser’s request to train with his squad.

Tranmere released Jennings at the end of the 2013-14 season by the then caretaker boss John McMahon.

Jennings started his career with the Birkenhead side in 2003 where he played 163 games in a six-year stay.

During that time he had a brief loan spell with Hereford United before crossing the border with Motherwell in 2009.

The 29-year-old spent three years in Scotland before signing for League One side Coventry City in August 2012.

After 39 league appearances for the Sky Blues, his contract was terminated 13 months into a two-year deal and he returned to Tranmere in October 2013.

Formally of Everton’s academy, Jennings featured 25 times last season but couldn’t prevent Tranmere’s relegation to League Two.

Port Vale boss Adams is keen to strengthen his midfield following the departures of Doug Loft, Anthony Griffiths and Billy Knott.

Former captain Loft has joined Gillingham, whilst Knott opted to sign for Bradford City.

Griffiths was released at the end of the season and Jennings could be a solid signing for the financially troubled side.

The Staffordshire based club currently have just 16 players for the upcoming season.

They have already signed Colin Daniel from Mansfield as well as adding former Hibernian defender Ryan McGivern.

Local lad Nathan Smith has also penned his first professional contract after progressing from their youth team.

Jennings will certainly bring experience to this Vale team, if he is offered a deal, having already amassed 359 appearances in an 11-year career.
