Uche Ikpeazu Loan Deal Confirmed

13 July 2015

Port Vale can confirm a loan deal for Watford striker Uche Ikpeazu has now been completed.

The 20-year-old signed a six-month contract with the club on Monday afternoon to finalise his move from the Premier League side having agreed terms last week.

Ikpeazu, who will wear the number nine shirt, spent the majority of last season on loan at fellow Sky Bet League One sides Crewe Alexandra and Doncaster Rovers.

He played against the Valiants twice last term including an eye-catching performance in the Alex's win at Vale Park in January.

Manager Rob Page is delighted to have secured the forward's signature and he told "We're absolutely over the moon to welcome Uche to the football club.

"He's an exceptional talent and a really physical player, as we saw when Crewe came here last season and he was one of the best players on the pitch.

"Uche is someone I've been tracking for a while and I have tried to get him in before so I'm delighted to have finally got him in.

"I'd like to place on record my thanks to my former club Watford for their co-operation in getting this deal over the line."
