Port Vale: Enoch Andoh set for first team, says boss Rob Page

Port Vale manager Rob Page says winger Enoch Andoh will play a part in his first-team plans this season - probably as a striker.

Ghana Under-23 international Andoh, 22, joined Vale in November but failed to make an appearance last term.

"I have seen the impact he has. His first two yards are unbelievable, he's lightning," Page told BBC Radio Stoke.

"I've told him about my plans for him. He enjoys playing wide left, but I see him more as a front man."

Andoh earned his deal at Vale Park after a successful trial period, having left Limassol in Cyprus last summer.

He spent the 2011/12 campaign with FC Porto, helping their youth side to an Under-19 championship.

After an impressive pre-season campaign so far, Andoh is very much in Page's thoughts.

"Of course he is," said the Vale boss. "It's about doing the right thing. I don't care what level you play at, when you've got pace and the level of attacking intent you're going to make an impact.

"He's looked really good in the games he's played up top and it's given me food for thought."

Vale begin their League One campaign with a trip to local rivals Crewe Alexandra on 8 August.
