Vale to sign Villa defender
Port Vale manager Martin Foyle is to sign Aston Villa teenager James O'Connor on a one-month loan.

The defender will link up with Vale on Friday and could make his debut against Bradford the following day.

Vale have problems at the back and Foyle could be without three defenders through injury and suspension.

O'Connor, 19, is yet to play in the first-team at Villa Park, but helped them win the FA Premier Reserve League last season.
