Fleetwood Town defender Joe Davis has left the club and sealed a switch back to his old club Port Vale.

The 23-year-old came through Port Vale’s academy and made 31 appearances before joining Leicester in 2014 but will now officially re-sign for Vale on July 1 after signing a two-year contract.

Town signed the centre half from Premier League side Leicester in January 2016 for an undisclosed fee after turning a loan spell into a permanent deal.

He racked up 25 appearances in total in that 2015/16 season but after finding game-time limited last term under Town head coach Uwe Rosler he has negotiated his release from Fleetwood where he was contracted for another year.

And Davis says he will miss the morale at Town.

He Tweeted: “Thanks to @ftfc for the past 18 months. Fantastic bunch of lads who I will thoroughly miss. Time for something new.”
