Mike Calveley and Dior Angus will benefit from going on loan to Nuneaton as they try to earn a long-term future at Port Vale, Valiants boss Neil Aspin told The Sentinel.

Both 19-year-old midfielder Calveley and 24-year-old forward Angus started Nuneaton’s friendly against Coventry on Saturday as the clubs seek permission from the Football League for them to join the National League North side on loan.

Aspin said: “Mike’s not ready, he’s not played at a high standard of non-league football. The reason he is at the club is because he has a good attitude and he deserves to get a year where he can try to progress.

“But it would be wrong to put him in the first team because at the moment he isn’t ready for that. He deserves to have an opportunity at this club but he will need to go out and play games at a better level and then we can assess how he is going to do.

“Dior has played at a higher level of non- league football than Mike but again he needs to do more and gain more experience at a higher level before he is going to threaten in the first team.”
