Gore goes out on loan

Tuesday 23 January 2024 18:00

Dan Gore has completed a loan move to Port Vale, which will run until the end of the season.

The young midfielder leaves the Reds for a first spell elsewhere, and will gain experience of League One football with Andy Crosby's men.

Vale's next match is at home to leaders Portsmouth on Saturday, and the team is spearheaded by former Reds striker James Wilson.

'Good loans are about playing games'


In the latest episode of The Debate, our panellists explain what makes a loan move successful for all parties.

Gore made his senior bow in the Carabao Cup victory over Crystal Palace in September. He then enjoyed a Premier League debut when coming on as a late substitute in the dramatic 3-2 victory over Aston Villa on Boxing Day.

There was another proud moment for the FA Youth Cup winner when he came on to the pitch to represent the Academy by laying a wreath before the kick-off against FC Copenhagen, to mark the death of the legendary Sir Bobby Charlton. Dan was accompanied by Alex Stepney and Erik ten Hag for the emotional occasion.

The 19-year-old has been named on the bench six times in the Premier League and on three occasions in the Champions League this term.

This move represents an eighth loan departure since the start of January.

The transfer window closes on 1 February.

We would like to wish Dan the very best of luck for the remainder of the campaign, and will eagerly track his progress at Vale Park.
