Port Vale`s mission to rebuild a team of Orient rejects is gathering pace with the news that they hope to add Clayton Fortune to their squad.

The giant defender has endured a miserable time at Brisbane Road and Orient are as keen to get rid of him as Vale are to sign him.

Foyle told Vale’s official website: ‘Regarding Clayton, I spoke to Martin Ling on Monday to see what the situation was.

‘He told me that Clayton might be available, and we have to go and see if we can put an offer together and then sort an overall package out.

‘I have done a bit of homework on a few players, and Clayton was one of them. If I can get a fit Clayton Fortune, then I know he would be an asset to us.

‘The situation does look good, because I know Clayton would love to come back here, so we will just have to wait and see about that one.’
