Port Vale sign Devante Rodney on a three-year deal


Rodney spent the majority of last season on loan in the National League.

Port Vale have signed winger Devante Rodney following his release by Sky Bet League Two rivals Salford.

The 22-year-old scored three goals in 12 appearances for Stockport and five in eight for FC Halifax during two loan spells in the National League last season.

The Shaymen had hoped Rodney would be available for their upcoming play-off campaign but he has now signed a three-year deal with the Valiants.

Chief executive Colin Garlick told Port Vale’s website: “(Manager) John (Askey) very much sees Devante as a player for now and the future.

“He is of a young age and just had a really good spell at Halifax – chipping in goals to help get them into a play-off position.

“The gaffer likes the look of him and he’s one that really fits into his plans going forward. John will want to kick him on and take him to that next level.”
