Chairman Norman Smurthwaite has said the club may sign up to four new players in the near future.
Vale have been strongly linked with adding a new striker and winger but Smurthwaite says that the club could now bring in up to four new additions. The signings could potentially include two strikers (with one being a permanent move) while there is also possible moves for a winger and a left-back.
The news will be a boost for Vale fans after the disappointing League Cup exit to Carlisle. Vale looked short of goals in that game so the addition of strikers and a winger will come as welcome news. With new signing Kiko injured, a move for a left-back to cover that position also makes sense.
The Valiants have already signed fourteen new players this summer and with a squad numbering more than 30 it is expected that several Valiants will be loaned out to make way for the new arrivals.
Thought l should put some time before reflecting on last night.This morning the management staff are under no illusions of our requirements
