Fans feel Yates deserves new deal

Fans feel Yates deserves new deal

A poll on the OVF website reveals that 70% of Vale supporters who voted think the full-back deserves a new deal in the summer.

Yates have held off challenges from Richard Duffy and Freddie Veseli in recent seasons to remain the club’s  first-choice right-back.

He joined the Valiants in 2009 and has now made almost 250 appearances for the side he supported as a child.

The Potteries-born 31 year-old has expressed a desire to remain at Vale Park and judging by the results of our poll, Vale fans agree with him!
