Bodin: Summer recruitment plans well under way

Assistant manager Paul Bodin has given an insight into Port Vale’s planning for summer signings.

Speaking at the club’s media day Bodin said: “We’re slowly putting things into place and there’s lots of work going on behind the scenes in terms of looking at players for next season.

There’s so much work being done but the players really don’t come to fruition until the middle to the end of June…

“But until the end of June really, for all the work that you do you don’t actually sign the players until that late.

“There’s a lot of contacts with people that you know, you’re going through the process of looking at players, speaking to players and getting character references and so on.

“So there’s so much work being done but the players really don’t come to fruition until the middle to the end of June.”
