The young Blues midfielder has joined the Valiants on loan until the end of the season.

"I got into training this morning and I was informed about the interest from Port Vale and as soon as I heard I jumped at the opportunity," Howland told the official Port Vale website.

"I've been playing in the Reserves now for a while, so it's the next step and I hope I can do well in first team football."
