First Words - Tyler Denton

7 August 2017

Tyler Denton has become the latest recruit to join Vale this summer as he put pen to paper on a season long loan.

The left-back joined the Valiants from parent club Leeds Untied and is the latest addition to Michael Brown’s side which he continues to put together.

Denton is a player that the Gaffer knew from his time with Leeds, as the two crossed paths when Tyler was rising through the ranks.

The 21 year-old is now looking forward to getting started with his new team mates and working with Michael Brown.

He said: “It’s great obviously, I’ve heard a lot about the place over the last few weeks and I know the manager from his time at Leeds and a few of the players like Tongey (Michael Tonge) and I’m just delighted and I can’t wait to get going.

“I trained with Michael Brown a few times when I was a young lad and even then he was a good pro. He does it the way it should be done and that’s why he’s had such a long career and he’s told me come in and work hard and see how we get on.”

Tyler had a taste of first team football last year under Gary Monk at Leeds and he is now after a regular run of games and he hopes that can be with Port Vale.

“It’s vital at my age, I had a little snippet at Leeds, but I need to be playing regular week in week out competitive football and here is the place for me to do it hopefully.

“I’m an attacking fullback, I like to pass the ball and keep the ball and playing at Leeds I’ve learnt the hard way, I know you have to dig in and dig deep when you need to and I can do that.”

Denton now has to wait for the chance to make his debut, as he can’t play against parent side, Leeds United in the Carabao Cup.

The left-back will have to wait till Saturday against Wycombe Wanderers for the opportunity.

He added: “I’m buzzing for Saturday just to get going and get started. I think this team needs to be fighting for promotion. We got off to a good start on the weekend and hopefully we can build on that.”
