RUFC - Pope moves on

Tom Pope has left Rotherham to join Port Vale, although this is only on loan at the moment. He will spend the next month with Rotherham's league two rivals.

The striker has struggled since joining, netting just 6 goals in 54 games, when he was signed to become the clubs joint record transfer signing in 2009 for 150,000.

Pope, as he told BBC Radio Stoke, is more than happy with this loan move to Vale as it completes a boyhood ambition as the Stoke-on-Trent born 25-year-old is a Port Vale fan: 'it's a dream move for me, one that I always hoped would happen.

'I can't wait to get playing again and hopefully scoring some goals which will make me more confident.'

He gave thanks to Ronnie Moore, who could have easily refused him permission to join a league two promotion rival: 'Ronnie Moore has been brilliant to let me go out at this time of the season to a fellow promotion rival.'

Do you think that this loan spell away from The Don Valley will do Tom Pope some good, and can this also rejuvenate his Millers career or do you think this is all but over anyway?

Never really started did it? Still can't believe you paid 150,000 for him.
