Wildes hints at new signing

Port Vale: New signing imminent at Vale Park

Port Vale are poised to announce a "big signing", according to co-owner Paul Wildes.

The promotion-chasing Valiants re-signed midfielder Chris Birchill last week and added experienced defender Darren Purse to their ranks at the weekend.

Now Wildes, who bought the League Two club in November along with business partner Norman Smurthwaite, has revealed there will be another new arrival at Vale Park on Tuesday.

He said on Twitter: "Spent the day negotiating another signing and I am pleased to confirm we are all agreed. We will announce the player Tuesday £bigsigning."
