Smurthwaite has confirmed to BBC Radio Stoke that the striker will be leaving the club.
BBC Radio Stoke claim that chairman Norman Smurthwaite has confirmed to them that striker AJ Leitch-Smith is leaving the club.
Manager Rob Page says that he expects several other clubs to show an interest in striker AJ Leitch-Smith.
Striker AJ Leitch-Smith says that “since I have come in I think I’ve done fairly well” as he targets more goals in the closing games.
A vote on OVF has revealed that Port Vale supporters are keen to see trio AJ Leitch-Smith, Enoch Andoh and Michael O’Connor handed new contract offers.
Top-scorer AJ Leitch-Smith has been ruled out of Friday’s game against Shrewsbury Town with a hamstring problem.
Rob Page says plans to bring in another player are on hold because he has “confidence” in Vale’s current forwards.
