Port Vale have completed their 14th signing since the end of last season after agreeing a loan deal for Birmingham City striker Alex Jones.

He will be with League One Vale until January and is set for his debut against Southend on Saturday.

The 21-year-old began his career with West Bromwich Albion before moving to Blues on a two-year deal in 2015.

Jones almost joined A-League club Wellington Phoenix in the summer but paperwork was not completed in time.

New Vale boss Bruno Ribeiro saw his new-look team draw their opening League One game at Bradford before losing their EFL Cup first-round tie against Carlisle.
