The former Manchester United man broke into the first-team at Old Trafford during the 2002/03 season. A player who has played in all of England's professional leagues offers Port Vale a range of options after his signature was settled in January 2017.
After leaving United in 2004, Pugh signed for Leeds United in a part-exchange deal with Alan Smith going the opposite way. After two years there he signed for Preston where he also played a similar amount of games for two years.
In 2007, Danny signed for Stoke City on loan with a view to a permanent contract at the end of the season. This was activated as the 34-year old signed and went on to play over 80 games for Tony Pulis, including an FA Cup final in the 1-0 loss to Manchester City in 2011. A return to Leeds looked to be on the cards as he joined them on a short-term loan deal and then a permanent one in September 2011.
Since then, Danny has gone on to play for the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry, Bury and Blackpool before joining Vale during the 2016/17 season. Manager Neil Aspin has praised Danny for his professionalism and says his experience both on and off the pitch is invaluable.
