Local Burslem firm Synectics Solutions have made a £1.25m bid to purchase Port Vale FC.
The firm are based in the former Normid building next to the Port Vale stadium.
The club is currently up for sale and Synectics say that they would lower season ticket prices if they were successful.
The firm would win the approval of many fans as they are locally based and therefore know the history and traditional of the club and would be more accountable due to their position in the local area.
However, it remains to be seen if Port Vale owner Norman Smurthwaite, who is seeking a higher price, would accept a bid in the range of £1.25m.
