Port Vale’s Monaco move is now doubtful

Norman Smurthwaite says a medical report may put a potential transfer target from Monaco in doubt.

“We have had a problem regarding a medical,” Smurthwaite told Radio Stoke.

 “We are trying to decide whether to take a risk. There has been a revelation which three scans have picked up on one of his knees.

“We know his quality and he was captain of Monaco reserves but there is a question mark now and we are trying to decide whether we draw up a new contract linked heavily to appearances.

“Bruno wants him but managers want as many players as they can get. I will have discussions with (the player’s) agent.”
