15 October 2015, 19:01

London - Nigerian young star, Uche Ikpeazu`s performance this season has compelled the coach of Port Vale, Rob Page to insist the youngster stays till the end of the season.

The Watford forward who is currently on loan at Port Vale till January has impressed since his loan move, scoring six goals in sixteen appearances for Port Vale.

According to StokeSentinel, Rob Page looked more at the positives since the arrival of Ikpeazu to Port Vale and hoped that his parent club, Watford will acknowledge Ikepazu's development.

"But I think it's the way we have treated the lad and what we have done for him since he's been here that is most important. We are helping their centre-forward progress and it is helping us in the short term as well, which will inevitably have a longer impact for Watford.

"I think they can see that what we have done for him so far is obviously helping to make him a better player. So hopefully there is something to be done there.

"He is a terrific lad and a good player. He is a fans' favourite and understandably so,'Rob Page concluded

The 20 year old, Uche Ikpeazu who is Port Vale top scorer so far this season may extend his stay at Port Vale if Rob Page succeeds in persuading Watford.
