Port Vale FC have said that they have turned down an approach by League Two rivals Gillingham to talk to Micky Adams about their vacant manager’s role.
A tweet from the Official PVFC Twitter account stated: “Port Vale have refused permission for Gillingham to speak to the club’s manager Micky Adams.”
A bullish Adams denied the rumours linking him to a move away from Vale Park last week. Apparently rounding on his Internet ‘armchair critics’ he told the Sentinel that: “I’ll tell them [the fans] now that I totally refute the idea I am interested in the Gillingham job.”
However, it appears that Gillingham have not heeded Adams’ claim to not be interested in the job and are looking to talk to the 50 year-old.
Adams has been in charge of Vale on two occasions – winning 55 games, drawing 38 and losing 38.
