Page prepared to look at loan forwards

Manager Rob Page has told the Sentinel that he still wants to add two forwards to his squad – and one may be a loan signing.

Vale are looking to replace departed duo Ben Williamson and Tom Pope and Page told the newspaper:  “I have had numerous conversations with managers, and they are saying they want to get pre-season out of the way and then see where they are at.

But we are in contact about a couple so we do have irons in the fire…

“With loan players, their own clubs want to see whether they are good enough for their squads first and then they want to get them fit.

“They want the responsibility for making sure that everything is done right. That’s not taking anything away from us, I would do the same with my players.

“I would want to make sure they are getting the quality work that I wanted them to do. But we are in contact about a couple so we do have irons in the fire.”
