Port Vale have appointed Darren Moore as their new manager.
The 49-year-old former West Bromwich Albion, Doncaster Rovers Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday boss has signed a five-and-a-half-year contract.
Moore succeeds Andy Crosby, who was sacked last week after a run of just one win in eight games.
“We identified Darren as out primary target to come in and galvanise and energise the club,” said Vale director of football David Flitcroft.
“Following extensive conversations, it’s clear to the board that he has a plan of how he wants to lead the club from the very front.
Moore added: “Our immediate aim is securing the club’s League One status between now and the end of this season whilst putting the foundations in place to create a clear footballing identity.
“The contract is a long-term commitment, a testament to the long-term vision of the club.”
Following Saturday’s 2-2 home draw with Stevenage, Vale remain in the relegation zone in 20th place, but level on points with the side above them, Charlton Athletic.
