Harlequin set to re-open talks

Harlequin, Vale's shirt sponsors, are interested in pumping around £500,000 into the League Two club but stressed that could only happen if they avoided relegation. Monday's draw with Rotherham did just that, although it failed to hide what has been a more than disappointing season at Vale Park. Whatever the outcome of the talks, it is unlikely the property developers would invest the entire lump sum in one payment, with the company likely to buy £250,000 worth of shares this summer before contributing the remainder later in the year.
