Port Vale have been boosted by the news that Michael Walsh and Danny Sonner have both agreed contract extensions with the club.
After an injury-ravaged last campaign, Walsh has penned a new one-year deal based on appearances while Sonner has agreed a new 12-month contract.
Walsh played a mere four times last season, however manager Martin Foyle is still delighted that his defender will be staying for at least another year.
"I am delighted about Walshy. He is an experienced player and we all know he can do the business at this level," Foyle told the club's official website.
"If he keeps himself injury-free and I believe that he can, then as everybody knows, he will be a great asset to the side.
"It was important from the club's point of view that we put a deal in front of him linked to appearances and that is what we did and he has agreed to sign."
Sonner (pictured) was also delighted to have been handed a new contract after a successful first campaign at Vale Park.
The Northern Ireland international is now hoping he can bring further success to the club and help them mount a promotion push next season.
"I am delighted. I have always stated that I want to stay at Port Vale and we have come to an agreement and I am here for the next season," Sonner added.
"I have enjoyed every minute of it here. I want success, I want the club to kick on and I am sure it can and I want to be part of that and I want to try to help the club be as successful as it can be."
