York City assistant manager Andy Porter has applied for the vacant Port Vale manager's position.
Porter, who quit as Vale's youth-team boss at Christmas to take up the role with the Minstermen, is eyeing a return to Vale Park to succeed Dean Glover - who was relieved of his duties last week.
It is the third time that the 40-year-old former Vale midfielder has applied for the top job after he lost out to Glover last year and Lee Sinnott in November 2007.
"I was at Vale for 18 years and being manager would be more than just a job to me," Porter told the Sentinel.
"I would love to come back and be part of it again. I would like the top job.
"You always have to apply for jobs because you can't just wait for people to do things. You have to do things for yourself."
