Foyle has seen young forward Billy Paynter lead the line with little support in recent weeks and he is keen to ease the burden on the 20-year-old's shoulders.
"People look at goals," said Foyle. "But when you look at Billy Paynter's performance, he looks like an experienced professional leading the line.
"I need him and have to look after him. I have to lighten the load."
Foyle had lined up a new forward last week, but had to shelve the move when he picked up a minor knock, and it remains to be seen if the Vale boss renews his interest.
