The winger was released by Coventry at the end of last season and has said he is relishing the chance to get back to competitive football.

Speaking to the club's official website, Marshall said: "Any person that plays football out of love will know it is always good to have the opportunity to play in a professional league and Port Vale has a lot of history so I'm happy to be here.

"I've been around the block a few times since starting out at Carshalton Athletic, and I'm now looking for somewhere to settle and I hope that will be Port Vale.

"The biggest thing for me as a player, is feeling wanted and when I spoke to Micky he talked about how he wants to progress and wants his team to progress. That vision really suits me so it wasn't really a hard decision in the end to be honest.

"When I had my time off, I realised how much I loved football. I'd go to the park every day and kick a ball around on my own and I'd just feel the buzz.

"So going out in front of just one fan is something special to me and makes me happy. so playing to the fans at Vale Park is going to be amazing."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
