Rumour: Website claims keeper has signed Vale deal

Website HITC Sport says its “sources close to the club” have told it the goalkeeper Jak Alnwick has agreed a new two and a half year deal with the Valiants.

Whether the website is speculating after the club revealed contract talks were ongoing or has inside information is unclear as it offers no explanation for its claims.

Alnwick has been one of Vale’s stand-out performers this season after signing on a short-term deal in the summer.

Getting Alnwick to agree to a long-term contract will be hailed as a great piece of business by the club as many supporters feel the 22 year-old has a bright future in the game.
