Reports in the local press claim that an overseas Vale fan could invest funds into the club.
According to the Staffordshire Sentinel, chairman Bill Bratt is set to fly out to meet a foreign-based Vale supporter.
Bratt describes the man as a ‘Vale fan at a distance’ and has clarified that it is not popstar Robbie Williams.
Bratt told the newspaper: “I am going out at the end of the month, hopefully to secure this investment, although there is always a chance things might fall through. But we are talking to one or two parties. I am more than 75 per cent confident that something will be arranged, but to say more would break our confidentiality agreement.”
