The Newcastle Chronicle newspaper claims that defender Remie Streete is set to sign for the Valiants on loan.
Vale boss Micky Adams resigned on Thursday but the Chronicle says that the move will still go ahead.
The Valiants are desperate to add new faces to their under-fire defence and Street, renowned as a tough-tackling, no-nonsense player could be an ideal signing.
The son of former Wolves player Floyd Streete, the centre-half is described as “quick, strong and aggressive” on the official Newcastle website.
