Port Vale manager Neil Aspin says reports on social media claiming the exit of loanee Marcus Harness are incorrect.
The 21 year-old joined the Valiants on a season-long loan under previous manager Michael Brown.
The Burton Albion player has continued to be a regular pick under Aspin so a premature end to his spell with the club would mark a major surprise.
Aspin told the media: “He has figured in nearly every game since I have been here. I am happy with Marcus, he has had a good impact since he has been here and he will be used from now to the end of the season.”
