Midfielder Luke Joyce looks set to follow team mates David Worrall and Scott Burgess by committing his future to the club. Joyce has already signaled his intentions by saying “there is nothing really to be done.”
Joyce has played a key role as the anchorman in the Vale midfield and has been a regular starter this season. The former Carlisle United man now has 79 Vale appearances and one goal to his name.

The 32 year-old has triggered a one-year contract extension and he told the Sentinel newspaper: “There is nothing really to be done as such. It is in my favour so I just need to let the club know within a certain time whether I am happy to stay, which I can’t see there being an issue with.
“To be honest I am not really thinking about it that much.
“It is nice for me as a player and my family to know I have another 12 months of a job because that is ultimately what it comes down to, especially when you get to my age.
“I will be 33 in the summer and it is just about staying in the game for as long as you can. I know now I can pay my bills next year and my mortgage, and all that boring stuff.
“It is nice to have that bit of security behind me. I can relax a little bit knowing that is there.”
