Bruno Ribeiro says he is keen to send some members of his Vale squad out on loan.
The Valiants have a squad of 31 and are set to name new additions this week.
The likely candidates would be young players such as Ryan Boot, Harry Pickering, James Gibbons, Billy Reeves, Omar Haughton and Dan Turner.
Ribeiro told the Sentinel: “Now we make our squad shorter because we have too many players. I want 22 or 23.”
