Media officer Dave Johnson says one of Vale’s potential new signings could be off as the Vale owner says he is targeting a proven goalscorer.
The Valiants were widely expected to announce the signings of goalkeeper Miguel Santos and forward Jamar Loza this week and assistant manager Michael Brown told the Sentinel newspaper: “They [the deals] are pretty much done.”
However, it now appears that at least one of the signings may not occur as Vale media officer Dave Johnson tweeted:
It could be that Vale have switched their sights to target an experienced goalscorer. The Valiants have impressed but looked short of goals in pre-season – particularly in the 3-0 defeat to Sheff Wed on Sunday.
Referring to that game, chairman Norman Smurthwaite tweeted:
We still need a proven league goal scorer so the search goes on.We will get there that is my mission and we will play like SW this season
