Port Vale boss Dean Glover has handed a trial to transfer-listed Cheltenham Town midfielder Scott Brown.
The 23-year-old has been told he is free to leave Whaddon Road by Robins boss Martin Allen and could be handed to chance to revive his career by Vale.
"I saw Scott play last week and he has a good reputation," Glover told The Sentinel.
"Things have changed for him at Cheltenham and he probably has to look elsewhere for football and I'm giving Scott the chance to play and train with us this week.
"He's a good footballer who's good on the ball, has an eye for a pass and has experience as well."
