Marshall keen to stay with Vale

Winger Mark Marshall has handed the club a boost with the indication that he would be keen to sign a long-term deal.

Marshall told the Sentinel: “To hear him [Norman Smurthwaite] say he wants to give me a new contract takes a little bit if pressure off me – although it puts a bit of pressure on me because I have to continue playing well so everything gets signed, sealed and delivered. It’s nice hearing it though. You wouldn’t get offered a contract if you weren’t doing well.”

“If everything goes well then I can see myself here for many more years.

“I can’t really get into the details of what is going on because that would be disrespectful to the chairman and all the people concerned.

“But I am happy, and playing, and I don’t think anyone can say I haven’t given my all.”
