Port Vale Football Club can confirm that Alex Hurst has completed a permanent transfer to York City for an undisclosed fee.
He was brought to the club in 2019 following a successful trial and would go on to represent the Valiants 29 times and he found the net twice.
Hurst will join up with former Vale manager John Askey, who is currently in charge of The Minstermen who play in the National League.
Speaking about the midfielder’s departure, Director of Football, David Flitcroft said: “We would like to wish Alex all the best with his move to York City and would like to thank him for the time he has spent at Vale Park.
“Alex has faced tough competition for game time here at Port Vale but has remained professional throughout and has played a key role as a member of our extended squad.
“The move to York will see him get the minutes on the pitch that he requires and it also gives him the chance to work with a manager he has a previous relationship with.
“Alex had one more year on his contract but the offer that York came in with was good value and will also see the club benefit from any potential future sales.
“This transfer falls in line with our continued commitment to extracting value for our assets and will maximise growth and improvement in the football club"
