Forward Talks To Valiant Player After Loan Move
- Vale snapped up Hull City striker on transfer deadline day.
- The 20-year-old was playing non-league football just over a month ago.
- Rob Page sees potential in the youngster who can play across the front line.
Deadline day loan signing Greg Luer has described his rise from non-league football to Premier League Hull City and then League One Port Vale as a ‘roller-coaster’.
The 20-year-old, who will wear the number 16 shirt for the Valiants, became Rob Page’s second addition of the January transfer window late on Monday following the acquisition of Tommy O’Sullivan from Cardiff City.
A forward by trade, Luer was playing Isthmian League Division One South football for Burgess Hill just over a month ago before top tier outfit Hull snapped him up.
Speaking to Valiant Player fresh from signing his temporary deal at Vale Park, the youngster explained what the last few weeks have been like.
“It’s been a bit of a roller-coaster,” he said. “I knew I could but I didn’t think I could make it into the pro game and then I assumed I’d be in the academy until the rest of the season.
“They told me I probably wouldn’t go out on loan this early because it has not really been done before so it’s a bit crazy really.”
