If Tom Elliott is indeed the mystery player being shown around Vale Park, then the Valiants may not be the only club interested in the six foot four inches striker.
A photograph purporting to show a potential new signing has been doing the rounds of the Internet and eagle-eyed Vale fans reckon that the person in the picture could be free agent Elliott.
However, Gillingham, who signed Ben Williamson from Vale earlier this summer are still in the market for another striker and Elliott is one name that has been linked to them.
24 year-old Elliott is a free agent after leaving Cambridge Utd in the summer.
Vale are looking for forwards after losing Williamson and Tom Pope during the off-season.
