Vale have given enigmatic winger Jeff Smith an ultimatum. Unsurprisingly, it’s not the one some supporters would want… Instead, Vale have urged Smith to commit his future to the club.
Smith has still not signed a 12-month deal offered to him at the end of the season and the club are apparently urging him to make his mind up.
Assistant manager Dean Glover told the Sentinel: “We want Jeff to sign and it would be nice to start to kick on with our plans a bit. It would be another player for next season. We are hoping for an answer before the end of the week.”
Smith has started 45 games and made 24 substitute appearances, since joining on a free transfer from Bolton Wanderers in 2004.
