Port Vale are being strongly linked with Carlisle midfielder Luke Joyce if social media comments are to be believed.
The 30 year-old is out of contract and although he has been offered a new deal by the Cumbrians it is believed to be on reduced terms.
Port Vale social media accounts claim the Valiants will sign the player while the rumour was on the BBC Cumbria Sport Twitter account before being deleted.
A defensive midfielder, Joyce made 46 appearances in League Two last season, scoring twice. He played in both matches against the Valiants.
