The Staffordshire Sentinel says that Port Vale could make moves for two League One strikers.
Manager Neil Aspin has said that forwards are a key priority and that the club has made bids for two players, suggesting that the club will be targeting under contract players rather than free agents.
Vale have already had a bid rejected for Chesterfield’s Kristian Dennis and could well be priced out of the bidding for the prolific transfer-listed striker.
If so, the Sentinel claims that Vale could look at Peterborough’s Ricky Miller, who is transfer-listed and was subject of Vale interest in January plus former Crewe man Billy Waters, out of favour at Northampton Town.
Both players are under contract and would presumably cost a fee. However, Miller was due to stand trial this summer and the outcome of that could influence whether Vale continue their interest or not.
