Port Vale have signed Rotherham United striker Tom Pope on a free transfer.
The 25-year-old former Crewe man has signed a one-year deal after impressing while on loan at Vale Park last season, scoring three times in 13 appearances.
Manager Micky Adams told the club website: "He's a very good striker at this level and I am sure he is keen to do well for the club he supports."
He added: "I am sure he will prove to be an important addition and can add another dimension to our attack."
