Defender signs until 2015
Port Vale Football Club has announced that defender Daniel Jones has signed a new two-year contract with the club.
The former Sheffield Wednesday left-back originally joined the Valiants in January until the end of the season but the defender has now committed himself to the club until 2015.
Jones made 16 appearances, helping Vale secure their first promotion since 1994.
Jones said: “As soon as the season finished I wanted to get it sorted out, now I can look forward to pre-season.
“I didn’t have any other thoughts of going anywhere else to be honest, Micky gave me my chance when he signed me in January and I haven’t looked back since.
“I wanted to stay here from when I first kicked a ball here, I have loved working with the manager and the team is quality.
“I have been really enjoying my football.”
Jones admits that manager Micky Adams was a huge factor in committing his future to Vale.
“He put confidence in me from the day I signed, the way he spoke to me, I felt part of the team, I felt wanted which is a massive thing for me,” said Jones.
Manager Micky Adams believes Jones’ experience in League One will benefit the Valiants next season.
Vale boss, Adams said: “Danny is committed to this football club for the next two seasons.
“He showed last season what he could do, with some excellent performances in League Two.
“He’s had League One experience with Sheffield Wednesday and this will be important next season.”
