Port Vale defender Ryan Inniss will miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury, manager Rob Page confirmed today.
It has been a frustrating campaign for the centre back, who has made just 17 appearances for the Valiants having arrived on a season-long loan in July.
Page told the press on Thursday afternoon at Vale Park: “Ryan has a grade three tear on his hamstring which isn’t great news.
“Unfortunately I think that writes him off for the rest of the season, it puts him out for about six to eight weeks.
“It has been very difficult from a mental point of view for him to cope with the amount of injuries he has had. They are big injuries as well.
“He has had probably three or four injuries in one season that any player would do well to just get away with one in a season. “
Inniss extended his thanks to Vale’s fans for their support throughout 2015/16 and vowed to come back stronger in a series of tweets.
“Would like to thank all at @OfficialPVFC for this season, been a difficult one for me with the injuries but none the less enjoyable,” he posted.
“Thanks for all those that stuck by me. I will be working hard to come back fitter and stronger.”
Everyone at Port Vale would like to wish Ryan all the best in his recovery.
