The official Port Vale Supporters Club claim that a North East based businessman has expressed an interest in buying the club.

Port Vale was put up for sale by owner Norman Smurthwaite during what has been a turbulent week for the Valiants.

The businessman wishes to remain anonymous but he claims to own a number of hotels.

He was advised to contact Norman Smurthwaite directly by the Supporters Club.
