Port Vale are pleased to announce that Cambridge United centre back, Leon Legge, has agreed to sign for the club once his current contract expires.
The 32 year old, who was four short of making 100 appearances during his spell at Cambridge, has agreed to a one year deal with the Valiants.
Originally from Bexhill-on-Sea, Leon has worked tirelessly to reach the stage he is at now having started his career in the Isthmian League Premier Division with Lewes FC where he made 100 appearances. The man mountain defender has since gone onto play for Tonbridge Angels, Brentford, Gillingham and Cambridge United, and is keen to get going for the Vale.
"I'm really excited to get started, I can't wait to meet my new teammates and start a new chapter in my career. The fans first and foremost will see an honest player who will always give 100%. I do the basics and what is expected from a defender, I win my battles and try to keep a clean sheet, you may even see my score a few goals at the other end!
"When I was talking to the gaffer his vision was clear and wanting to push the club up the league, I'm sure he will bring in the right signings to do so and massively improve on last season. Vale are a big club and gaffer has shown intent with his latest signings so far, and I can't wait to get stuck in pre season to prepare for the new season.
The club can also confirm that The New Saints FC defender, Connell Rawlinson, has agreed to sign for the club on a one year deal when his current contract expires.
