Adam Yates has once again been one of Vale’s consistent performers this season. Yes, he has his detractors, but he has now seen off challenges from both Richard Duffy and Freddie Veseli for the right-back slot.
Yates has told the Sentinel that he wants a new deal at the club and that the likes of Michael Brown have shown how important experience can be.
Yates commented: “I hope the chairman doesn’t view players at 30 or 31 as being old pros!
“Michael Brown is 37 and his experience is phenomenal. That rubs off on every player in the squad, not just the young players but the older lads such as me or Tom Pope, Chris Birchall, Richard Duffy and Louis Dodds.”
