Welcome To Port Vale - Cristian Montano

20 June 2017

We are delighted to announce the signing of winger Cristian Montano on a two year-deal.

The 25 year-old joins from League One side Bristol Rovers, where he has spent the last two seasons making 62 appearances, scoring three goals.

Born in Colombia, Cristian moved to London as a child and eventually joined the youth set-up at Premier League side, West Ham United.

Montano signed his first professional deal with the Hammers in 2010 and was sent out on loan to gain some experience.

The winger had spells with Notts County, Swindon Town, Dagenham & Redbridge and then back to Notts County, before joining Oxford United.

During his short loan spells, he made 39 appearances, scoring 10 goals, which impressed Oldham Athletic, who signed him on a permanent deal from West Ham.

Cristian made 48 appearances during his spell at Boundary Park, scoring four goals in his two year spell.

After a brief stint with America de Cali in Colombia, Montano returned to England with Bristol Rovers in 2015.

He helped the club secure promotion from League Two to League One during his first year and was a key figure during his two years with the club.

The winger will link up with his new team mates this Summer when they return for pre-season ahead of the Sky Bet League Two campaign.

Stay tuned to the club website and official social media channels to hear more from Cristian over the coming days.
