With Micky Adams suggesting that Vale may include trialists in their summer programme, a former Welsh International has been linked.
This feature contains rumour and speculation. All of these rumours should be treated as unconfirmed gossip until any move is officially announced by the club itself. We make no apologies for publishing some rumour and gossip (after all, even the state broadcaster, the BBC, publishes a daily Football Gossip column) but we’d just like to reiterate that this feature should not be treated too seriously.
The player, who has been linked on a popular football rumours website is Darcy Blake, who has 14 caps for Wales but who is currently without a club.
The 25 year-old can play as either a midfielder or a defender and it could be that Vale will be tempted to offer him a trial.
However, we’d stress – this is only a rumour…
