Owusu targets Vale link-up

Unattached striker Lloyd Owusu is targeting a move to Port Vale this summer after being released by Luton Town.

Despite scoring six goals in 13 matches last season for The Hatters, the 34-year-old was deemed surplus to requirements at Kenilworth Road last week.

Owusu had previous turned down a short-term offer at Vale Park and instead opted to join Luton, and the former Reading man is hoping that the returning Micky Adams will renew his interest in him this summer.

"I think Micky is still keen," he told GiveMeFootball. "He knows my situation so I think we'll just keep him in the loop and we just talk to people to see if they want an experienced centre forward. I think something will happen for me.

"It could be nice because when I went there Micky was quality and his assistant Geoff Horsfield, and as for the players they were wicked and they made me feel really welcomed so that could be a nice option to bring me if and when he gets the opportunity."


A shortage of directors of the Vale board has meant Adams has been unable to sign players upon his return from Sheffield United, meaning the boss will have to make up the numbers on the board to help expand his threadbare squad, delaying, for now a move for Owusu.

Having scored over 100 goals in the Football League, Owusu has no reservations that he can still cut it at the same level where he made his name.

"Without a doubt its the football league (I want to be)," he added.

"If you've got the ability, the desire, the hunger, the attitude and the goalscoring abilities which I've proved that I've done. I can still make it in League One, League Two. I know for a fact that Lloyd Owusu can score goals wherever he goes."
