Vale squad size and the January transfer window


Recommended Posts

Any club with a basic stats package will know Gibbons is good. He must register highly in standard stuff like 'entries into final third' and 'progressive carries'. Fullbacks/wingbacks who have the energy and pace to contribute at both ends (and on either flank) are so valuable these days. As I've said before, his innate aggression make him unique.

Add on some reverential reviews of his character by Clarke, a string of MOTMs, and the fact he has just over 6 months on his contract, and I'd be surprised if some clever League 1 clubs don't make a cheeky bid in January.

If Gibbons is interested, we're left in a position where we either accept the offer then, or risk losing him for nothing in the summer. Of course, we may gamble that we'll get promoted and that will convince him.
