The Sentinel reports that forward Calvin Andrew is set to follow in the footsteps of Liam Chilvers and extend his short-term deal until the end of the season.
Andrew joined Vale in December following Vale’s unsuccessful attempt to loan Lee Hughes. He had been a free agent since leaving Crystal Palace in the summer.
The 26 year-old made his debut as a substitute in the FA Cup defeat to Sheffield United and has now made ten appearances for the Vale (four starts and six sub appearances) without scoring.
“Calvin probably hasn’t had the number of starts he would have wanted since he joined us,” boss Micky Adams told the newspaper.
“But he always gives his all and he’s versatile, so it gives me a few options.
Andrew’s latest appearance was as a substitute in the 2-2 draw with AFC Wimbledon on Thursday evening.
