The Staffordshire Sentinel reports that Vale’s Gavin Tomlin could make a return to former club Southend United.
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.
Tomlin only joined the Valiants from Southend in the summer of 2013 and endured a stop-start first season in Burslem. He netted the winner over Walsall but was also disrupted by injuries. In total, the 31 year-old netted six times for the Vale in 21 starts.
If Tomlin does decide to leave, the Sentinel reports that Vale have lined up a replacement.
