Sentinel: Potential buyers include American consortium

The Sentinel claims that an American consortium is among three “serious” contenders to purchase the club.

Vale has been for sale since November and this week Norman Smurthwaite revealed he was in talks with four parties about buying the club.

However, the newspaper says that one group are unlikely to have the funds to make an acceptable offer.

The Sentinel says the American group have a background in sport but not football and would like to purchase both companies – the football company and the company set up for the Vale Park stadium.
