The Sentinel claims that Port Vale want half a dozen new players, including former loanees Liam Chilvers and Jennison Myrie-Williams.
According to the newspaper, manager Micky Adams has made an “A list” and “B list” of targets.
Assistant manager Mark Grew told the Sentinel: There are some people who have been released this summer who we would love to sign.
“There are players who could play in the Championship, and you never know at this stage how things are going to drop. We want to bring in quality.
“Liam and Jennison will both be on our list of targets because they did so well here on loan, but that doesn’t necessarily mean any deals are imminent.”
