Port Vale have signed Lee Molyneux on loan from Southampton until the end of the season.
The left-back was a product of Everton's academy before completing a move to the South Coast in January 2009, signing a two-and-a-half year deal with Saints.
Southampton are happy to loan out Molyneux as he is well down the pecking order at St Mary's and the 21-year-old is looking forward to his time at Vale Park.
"I will be here until the end of the season, but I still have a year left on my contract at Southampton. But hopefully I will do well and we will take it from there," Molyneux told the club's official website.
