Port Vale sale in October?
The administrator of Port Vale, Bob Young of Begbies Traynor, is hopeful that a deal that can take the club out of administration will be agreed in October. Three contenders have emerged to buy the club with others in the wings.
In March Lancashire businessman Keith Ryder was named as preferred bidder with a proposed £1.3m deal. When it collapsed last month, the administrator said that he had never known this to happen at such an advanced and late stage.
