Port Vale have signed Nottingham Forest defender Adam Crookes on loan for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old can play either left-back or in a central defensive role.

He spent the first part of this season on loan at Lincoln City, but did not feature in a League Two match, having spent time at Guiseley last term.

"A natural left-footer in the defence is something we've not had and he'll compete for a place," Vale manager Neil Aspin told the club website.
