Rigg: Set to return to Vale Park
Promising striker Sean Rigg is looking to impress in his impending second spell on loan at Port Vale.
The striker first moved to Vale Park in November but returned to his parent club Bristol Rovers last week.
But the 21-year-old is expected to re-sign for Vale until the end of the season and hopes to impress boss Micky Adams to earn a permanent deal or attract interest from other clubs.
Rigg told The Sentinel: "I'm expecting the loan deal to be completed later this week, and I must say I'm really happy to return.
"I'm aiming to impress until the end of the season, and if Vale offered me a permanent contract at the end of the loan spell, of course it'd be something I'd consider.
"If not, hopefully I will have done well enough to attract interest from other clubs."
Bristol Rovers colleague Lewis Haldane has already extended his loan stay at Vale Park until the end of the season and Rigg is delighted to be soon re-joining him.
He added: "I'm really good mates with Lewis so it has been a big help having someone at the club I know so well.
"The manager (Adams) has also been great, and I really want to show the supporters what I can do in the next few months."
Rigg netted seven goals while on loan at Forest Green Rovers earlier this season but is glad to be plying his trade again in the league, where he scored on his first start for Vale in the 2-1 victory over Grimsby.
He added: "I had a really enjoyable time down there (at Forest Green) and it was good to be starting games.
"But I want to be playing league football, and that's why it was a big boost when Vale came in for me."
