Port Vale striker Lee Hughes believes that teammate Ben Williamson has the ability to make an impact in League One next season.

Port Vale striker Lee Hughes believes that teammate Ben Williamson has the potential to succeed at a higher level.

Williamson has impressed for the Valiants during the early part of pre-season, and Hughes has insisted that the 24-year-old forward has a "massive future" in front of him.

The 37-year-old told The Sentinel: "Ben's a very talented lad who's improving all the time.

"I see a lot of potential in him and I'm sure that he can go a lot higher than League One.

"He's someone who has everything a good striker needs. He has terrific pace, he's really powerful, his movement is great and he has awareness too – he has a massive future ahead of him."

The former Millwall trainee netted nine goals in 39 appearances for Vale last season.
