Forgotten man Liam Dickinson still thinks he has a chance of a career at Port Vale after a year ravaged by injury.
Dickinson trained with the club in the summer and the indications from the player’s agent were that the player would join the Valiants as soon as he was fit.
But instead the player required another operation on his ankle and is now expected to be ruled out for the whole of this season.
Despite the setback, Dickinson has told the Sentinel that he is still keen on a move to Vale Park. He told the newspaper:
“When I left the club, Micky Adams offered me the chance to come back after the surgery and I’m now trying to sort that out.
“I’m hoping to go in once or twice a week at first to work with the physio Andy Foster and we’ll see how it goes.
“Micky has been great by leaving the door open and I’m grateful for the chance.
“I was ready to sign for the club last summer, but hopefully, I can get my ankle right while I’m working at Vale and hopefully something will happen.
“It looks like I could have a few options as three or four clubs have been in touch while I’ve been recovering.
“But Micky has been really supportive and I’d love to repay him one day.”
