Horton moves for Collins
Bury defender Sam Collins
Collins could be on his way to Vale Park
Port Vale boss Brian Horton is confident of signing Bury defender Sam Collins.

Horton has held talks with the 25-year-old following his release from Gigg Lane.

And the Vale manager is optimistic that Collins, who previously played under Horton at Huddersfield Town, will move to Vale Park when his existing contract expires at the end of June.

"We've held talks with Sam and his agent. They've been good talks so hopefully there's a pretty good chance he will come here," said Horton.

Collins moved from Huddersfield to Bury three years ago and started more than 80 games for the Shakers.

"He's played a lot of First Division football for his age. He's a big centre-back, he can throw it a mile," Horton told Vale's official website.

"I signed him on a good contract at Huddersfield because I thought he could get to the top, and I still think he's got the ability to go to the top."
