Following David Worrall’s decision to sign a new two-year deal with the Valiants, Port Vale midfielder Scott Burgess has confirmed he is in contract negotiations and would “like to stay” at Vale Park.
Burgess signed a one-year contract in the summer after a slow start has now established himself as a regular starter in the Port Vale midfield. His form is such that Vale have plenty of competition with the likes of Tom Conlon, Manny Oyeleke, Jake Taylor, Luke Joyce and Burgess all battling for a start.
It’s being sorted. I’d like to stay and I’ve really enjoyed myself this season…
The competition is spurring Burgess on with him telling the official Port Vale website: “There’s a lot of competition in midfield places, we’ve got great options for the gaffer and with Manny and Jake coming back it only strengthens the team. We’ve all got different styles of play and we all bring something to the table, that can only benefit the team.”
Burgess is only 22 and has plenty of time to develop so Vale fans will be hoping he follows Worrall’s lead and signs a new contract. Burgess told the official Port Vale website: “It’s being sorted. I’d like to stay and I’ve really enjoyed myself this season. I’ve worked with the gaffer before at Macclesfield and he’s given me an opportunity here, I’m really grateful for that.”
