Manager Micky Adams has told the Sentinel that he is in advanced talks with two new signings.
Vale have a squad of just 15 following the departures of several key players and rejections from the likes of Craig Westcarr and Paul Huntington.
Adams told the Sentinel: “We are in discussions with a couple of players.
“The problem is getting these deals over the line, but I am hopeful that we will have a couple of new players by the time we come back for pre-season training.
“But until deals are over the line I would rather not say any more about them.”
