Vale’s approach to sign a striker from a fellow League One club appears to have been in vain, reports the Staffordshire Sentinel
This feature contains rumour and speculation. All of these rumours should be treated as unconfirmed gossip until any move is officially announced by the club itself. We make no apologies for publishing some rumour and gossip (after all, even the state broadcaster, the BBC, publishes a daily Football Gossip column) but we’d just like to reiterate that this feature should not be treated too seriously.
Following the departures of Jordan Hugill and Gavin Tomlin, Vale were reportedly targeting a League One forward but according to the newspaper, the player is reluctant to move.
It’s more bad news for the club with the squad still five players short of completion and Preston defender Paul Huntington turning down a move earlier this week.
Nevertheless, fortunes can change quickly in football and a handful of quality additions will no doubt soon change the negative atmosphere at Vale Park.
