Port Vale have announced John Askey has been appointed as manager until the end of the season.

The 54-year-old will be joined by Dave Kevan, who has been named assistant manager.

Port Vale chief executive Colin Garlick says: "We wish John and Dave all the very best as they take up their new positions with the club. My staff and I will do all we can to support them and I ask all Valiants to do the same.

"I'd also like thank Danny Pugh, Ronnie Sinclair and Michael Tonge for stepping in last week and working in a helpful and professional manner."
