Tobias will try to triumph at Vale

Last updated : 18 January 2008 By Tom Vickers
Young reserve team striker Tobias Mikaelsson has joined Port Vale on a month long loan deal. The Swede has been a hit for the Villa second string this season and will link up with team mate Chris Herd who is on similar contract with the League One outfit.
Vale have struggled in the division so far and the Villa boys will look to help save their season. It's a lot to ask from two players so young, but there is no doubt that they have the talent.
Mikaelsson is the brightest attacking prospect for the Claret and Blue meaning his progess will be kept under tight scrutiny. Whether he is valiant enough to help claw Port Vale to safety remains to be seen, but for his parent club it is performances and not results that are all important.
Good Luck Tobias!
