Prosser 'over the moon' with deal

Port Vale defender Luke Prosser has said he was happy to commit himself to the League Two club for another year.

The 21-year-old signed a contract extension on Wednesday, following fellow youngster Ross Davidson's decision to stay with the Valiants.

"I'm over the moon," Prosser told BBC Radio Stoke. "It's gone on for a while, but now it's all sorted I can get sorted for pre-season.

"I want to progress a lot more and get a starting place week-in week-out."

Prosser began his career as a trainee at Tottenham Hotspur and made his Vale debut in April 2008 in a 3-2 victory at Brighton.

He has made 27 league starts for the Valiants, and he is hopeful that more will follow under the club's new manager Micky Adams.

"I've never played under a manager with as big a name as Micky Adams," added Prosser.

"Everyone's got a point to prove, no one is guaranteed a place, and so it's a big year for everyone at the club.

"I want to be involved in the squad, no one wants to be sat in the stands. This year I'm not just going to sit back. I want to progress and get a regular starting place."

Adams has made two new additions to the squad since taking over on 5 June, with Tommy Fraser and Adam Yates heading to Vale Park on free transfers.
