VALE STILL HOT FOR ACE ALEX

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

MICHAEL Brown says Birm­ing­ham City’s sur­prise sack­ing of man­ager Gary Rowett could hin­der Port Vale’s hopes of sign­ing on­loan striker Alex Jones.

The 22-year-old scored six goals in his first eight games at the club, lead­ing Vale to im­me­di­ately open ne­go­ti­a­tions over a per­ma­nent move.

As­sis­tant man­ager Brown said: “We had talked to Gary quite a bit. This could help or hin­der.

“But we want Alex at the foot­ball club and we will deal with who­ever that lands on now.”
