Port Vale have announced on Monday afternoon that they have completed the signing of Newcastle United’s Remie Streete.

The defender was on loan at the League One club last season briefly and good luck to him now he’s made the move there permanently.

A bit strange he was never given a single minute of first team football despite Newcastle keeping him until he was almost 21, especially as he was reguarly talked about as one of the more promising young players at the club.

Using his Twitter account, Remie Streete had put up the following message on Sunday night:

“I will be signing for my new club tomorrow afternoon #NewStart.”

Port Vale Official Statement

‘Port Vale are delighted to confirm the signing of Remie Streete on a two-year deal.

The defender left former club Newcastle United by mutual consent last month and becomes Rob Page’s second signing of the day following the acquisition of Sam Kelly.

The 20-year-old spent time on-loan with the Valiants last season, making three appearances for the first team, but was recalled early by the Magpies.

He then became one of five Newcastle players to be loaned to Scottish side Glasgow Rangers.

Manager Rob Page is delighted to have secured Streete’s signature and sees the addition of the centre back as a massive coup.

 “We’re really pleased to have signed up Remie. He’s a very good player with a lot of potential – something we saw when he was last with us.

“Remie, along with Sam who we also signed today, is now part of the bright future we are building at this football club.

“We were very impressed when he was last with us and we made him one of our top summer targets so to have him in the building is brilliant.’

    Without going to the bother of checking the squad list, have we actually got 11 players left, plus subs? I wouldn’t put it past Ashley and co to only turn up with 10 for the first game. Still what amazes me is that other clubs can sign people and we can’t. Have we got a totally different set of transfer days to other clubs? Or has the line moved again?

    The Club is a shambles

    Carlos Tevez’s agent has said there is an undisclosed premier league club after him.
    Not so long ago it would of been nice to think it was us. Well when I say not so long ago, I mean 8 years ago. But now……… it’s a case of “not a facking chance”

    GToon maybe Ashley wants a game himself so he’s depleting the squad enough that it becomes the only option to be able to field XI players.

    This lad was talked about as the new Steven Taylor coming through the academy, a future England defender.  Like him or not, at least Taylor got to develop into a decent player by playing first team football (and let’s be honest when his ego is put to one side he is capable of some match-winning performances in the back line…but once his ego takes over and he thinks he can run forward with the ball and be too clever that’s usually when it falls apart and he either elbows someone and gets sent off for handball).

    I just don’t understand keeping a guy here until he’s almost 21 with zero football at senior level.  I just hope McClaren has a few more spuds and actually begins to treat the youth academy as the feeder and give them a chance to develop rather than treat with with contempt like the previous two incumbents did.  They may well not work out, but I think it would be nice to actually find out and see how they progress rather than make our minds up based off a manager who is too scared to put them in because they might actually need guidance rather than be able to just get thrown in and play…and tactics explaining (hard to do when you don’t actually know them yourself).
