Remi Streete was unveiled as a Port Vale player on Monday afternoon, having been released by Newcastle this summer.
Streete never quite made the impact he would have wanted at Newcastle and also spent much of his time with Rangers injured.
The youngster will hope his next career move brings him more luck, though, and Streete took to Twitter to express his delight at signing for Port Vale.
Delighted to have signed a 2 year deal at Port Vale, been a busy day thank you for all the messages ⚽#PVFC— Remie Streete (@Remiestreete80) June 15, 2015
Both Newcastle and Rangers have hired new managers this summer, with Steve McClaren taking over at St James' Park and Mark Warburton being named at Ibrox - also on Monday afternoon.
Some supporters comments on social media have suggested Rangers might have moved for Streete on a permanent deal had Warburton been appointed by the Gers earlier.
Others, however, have pointed to Streete's injury record as a sign he wouldn't have been a good enough signing for Rangers, anyway.
Perhaps the 20-year-old can rebuild his reputation at Port Vale - and he may end up back at Newcastle or Rangers as a new player later in his career.
