Port Vale goalkeeper Joe Anyon has said that he is not looking to leave the Club on loan in order to aid his comeback from a broken leg.
Anyon has not played for the Vale first team since suffering the injury in the 2-1 defeat by Chesterfield in March.
He told BBC Stoke:
“The management team will know when the time is right for me to get some games. All I’ve got to do is concentrate on playing football, whether it’s in training or for the Reserves.”
The 22 year old former Apprentice continued his comeback in the Valiants’ Reserve team in Monday’s 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion.
He admitted he is starting to get “itchy feet” about a possible first-team comeback, but is hoping that his chance will come in the right circumstances.
“I don’t want to come into the team because they aren’t doing well, I want to be part of a winning team.”
“It’s a collective effort and we all want the Club to move forward. I’m happy to watch at the moment and see how well the lads are doing. Hopefully when I’m called upon I’ll be ready and I can show the Manager what I can do.”
Anyon has already made more than 100 league starts for the Valiants since appearing making the leap from the Club’s Apprenticeship programme and was named as the Club’s Player of the Year in 2008-09.
