League One transfer latest: Ex-Manchester United defender joins Port Vale

Port Vale

All the latest summer transfer news from League One...

On Monday, confusion surrounded the future of Sheffield United defender Harry Maguire. The Blades stated that Hull had a bid accepted, only for the Tigers to refute those claims. Yet, just 24 hours later, the England Under-21 international has finalised his move to the KC Stadium for £2.5m.

"As soon as I heard of Hull City’s interest, I wanted to make the move," said Maguire. "Coming here and having the chance to play in the Premier League, it was a no brainer really. It’s a great opportunity to come here and it’s a fantastic challenge - one that I’m really excited about."

"Obviously I had a great time at Sheffield United, but another season playing in League One is something that didn’t really appeal to me. I wanted a new challenge and a new opportunity and obviously coming to Hull City provides me with both of those things. I know it’s going to be a tough challenge but that is exactly what I want."

Elsewhere, Port Vale are looking to replenish their squad having lost a number of players this summer, and today they tied up the loan signing of Ipswich Town defender Frederic Veseli until the beginning of January. The Swiss youngster, 21, left Manchester City for Manchester United in 2012, but failed to make an impact at Old Trafford, eventually leaving for Ipswich last summer.

Finally, Crewe Alexandra are poised to lose forward Mathias Pogba. The 23-year-old, who has hit 14 goals for Crewe since joining from Walsall in 2012, is the brother of former United midfielder Paul Pogba, and wants to move to Italy alongside his brother, the Juventus star - with Pescara poised to snap up the French-born Guinea international.

"We are just waiting for the paperwork and I think that will happen today," said manager Steve Davis. "I think there are still some details to sort out with that from Pescara. I don't envisage any problems but will need to be sorted before it's sent over to the Football League. It is just one of them things."
