Port Vale are remaining patient as they look to sign Nottingham Forest’s Tyler Walker on loan again according to a report from the Nottingham Post.

Walker signed on loan for Port Vale in the January transfer window but was only able to make a minimal impact on the squad. He scored two goals in six games but his season was cut short due to a knee injury, meaning Walker was unable to do anything as the Valiants were relegated from Sky Bet League One.

But their head coach Michael Brown was impressed with what little he saw of Walker during his time with the club and is now looking to sign him once again. In Sky Bet League Two, Walker could become a devastating force as Port Vale look to return to League One at the first time of asking and it appears the club will be doing what they can to bring him back to Staffordshire. However with Forest head coach Mark Warburton yet to get a proper look at Walker since his appointment, it’s likely that it might take some time for Port Vale to complete the deal because his parent side will want a closer look at the striker.

But Brown is willing to be patient and wait until Forest decide on Walker’s future and he expects to do the same for Derby County’s Callum Guy, another player he wants back at the club.

He said: “It is out of our control,”

“It is whether players want to play in League Two and whether the club will let them come to us.”

“But we would love to have the pair of them. Two new managers (Warburton and Rams boss Gary Rowett) have gone in who will both want to see the players.”
