Veteran Brown looks to be staying with Port Vale

Veteran midfielder Michael Brown has given a clear indication that he will be staying with the club next season.

The Sentinel reports that Brown is working with scout Dean Glover to target players for next season – an indication that Brown is set to stay with the club.

The 39 year-old has been moved into the coaching team and is likely to be the assistant to the new manager but details of any new contract for Brown are yet to be announced by the club.

It is unclear whether Brown will continue his playing role or will concentrate more on off-pitch duties, but in an interview last season he announced he intended to continue playing until he was 40 – perhaps indicating that next season could be his last season as a player.

After the departure of Michael O’Connor, Brown’s experience could be vital and he would offer cover for the likes of Anthony Grant and Sam Foley.
