Potential investor Mike Newton has told BBC Radio Stoke about his plans for the club.
Newton, a former board member at Oldham Athletic, is looking to invest around £400,000 in the League Two club.
He told BBC Radio Stoke: “I want Port Vale to win football matches and be an object of pride for its supporters.
“Everything we do needs to be devoted to providing the maximum resources to the first team. It’s that simple.
“What we have to do is to improve the commercial activities of the club, for which I have clear plans, and we have to get the non-football costs under control.
“We have to run the club overall in a professional manner, to make us the benchmark for how a Football League club should be run.”
