League Two club Port Vale have signed midfielder Chris Regis on a contract to the end of the season.

The 20-year-old played for Arsenal and Southampton at Under-18 level, and had a spell at Colchester last term without making a first-team appearance.

He joins a Vale side currently 22nd in the table, having won only four of their 16 games.

Regis scored on his debut just three minutes into Tuesday's 4-2 EFL Trophy group win at home to Crewe Alexandra.

Vale's fifth victory in seven games under new boss Neil Aspin ensured that they finished top of Northern Group D, guaranteeing them a home tie at the regionalised last 32 stage.
