Goalkeeper Sam Johnson has signed a one-year contract with Port Vale.
The 22-year-old, who has made 26 first team appearances for the club to date, put pen to paper on his new deal at Vale Park this morning.
He will join his teammates in pre-season training when the squad returns next month.
Johnson made his debut for the Valiants in October 2012 against Walsall in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and scored the winning spot-kick in a tie-deciding penalty shootout.
The youngster started the 2014/15 season as Vale’s first choice ‘keeper but Chris Neal’s persistence saw the former Shrewsbury Town man win back the number one shirt.
Speaking of Johnson’s new deal, manager Rob Page said: “Sam is a very promising young goalkeeper and someone we were keen to keep.
“So I’m pleased that he has signed the contract we have offered him and we’re looking forward to working with him once again next season.”
