Port Vale manager keen to guide Sierra Leone defender

April 9, 2015 By Sahr Morris

Port Vale manager Rob Page has said that he is prepared to offer his former Chelsea defender Aziz Deen-Conteh full support to make an impact at the squad in the near future.

The former Chelsea trainee who signed for Port Vale in November 2014 is now a regular for the League One reserve side as well as training with the first team.

“We know we’ve got a talent on board and one we can develop to hopefully benefit the first team and the football club.

“Few weeks ago I spoke to Adi Viveash, who has worked with him at Chelsea with regards to the development and he speaks very highly of him,” Page told the club website.

Deen-Conteh signed as a free agent after he was released in the summer by Greek Super League side Ergotelis, where he made only seven appearances.

He was part of Chelsea’s 2012-13 Champions League squad but failed to make a single appearance for the team.

He has been capped by both England U16s and 19s before being made available for Sierra Leone in 2013.

Deen-Conteh was born in Sierra Leone and moved to Deptford, London before joining Chelsea at the age of 13.

In March 2013, he committed his international football to Sierra Leone, the country of his birth.

He was invited to represent the counter but was unable to play due to an expired passport. The left-back was called up again in May 2013, alongside fellow Chelsea player Samuel Bangura.
