Defender Leaves United

Adam Eckersley has joined League One strugglers Port Vale.

The 22-year-old defender, who had a loan spell at Vale Park cut short in October
because of a knee injury, has moved to Vale Park on a permanent deal.

"They told me before my injury they would like to renew my loan, and obviously
with the injury I couldn't come back for six weeks, but I believe we have a got a
good chance of staying up in League One and I am happy to be back, it is a good
club with good people here," Eckerskey told Vale's official website.

"I was disappointed when I had to go back injured, but then again, that's football
for you. Injuries are just part of the game and I picked myself up from that and
will just carry on.

"My knee feels strong now and I just need to get my fitness back because I
haven't played for six weeks, but once I get back training I should be fine.

"I will try my best for the team and obviously I am a defender so I will try to help
out as regards the team not conceding goals.

"It is a new thing for me. I have been at Manchester United since I was 9 years
old and I have left there now, so I just want to get on with my career and
hopefully play senior football over the next couple of years."

Good luck indeed - Port Vale are bottom of League One at the moment.

There are rumours that Bardsley will be joining Sheffield Utd/Sunderland on a permanent basis this transfer window.

Gibson has extended his loan spell at Wolves to the end of the season

oh no...that means i wouldn't see him in my football manager game anymore lol

when i get bored with my real game, i used to use an editor and boost his stats up to the best player

he always get a rating between 8-10 for me
