The Sentinel has revealed that the Valiants are yet to agree a compensation package with former manager Lee Sinnott.
Sinnott left his post three months ago and was recently linked with the vacant post at Bradford Park Avenue.
Vale chairman Bill Bratt told the newspaper: “As far as I’m concerned I wish Lee all the best. I hope he gets a decent job and succeeds.
“In the meantime we are still talking about his compensation. We’re dealing with it through solicitors and that’s all we can say.
“We want him to get another job. We hope to come to an agreement. Common sense needs to prevail, and we hope it will.”
