Rotherham Set For Vincent Move?

Rotherham Set For Vincent Move?

Vale winger Ashley Vincent is believed to be a transfer target for fellow League One side Rotherham United. Steve Evans` side secured promotion on the final day of the season and armed with an increased budget next season, it is believed that the Scot is keen to secure the services of the 27 year old who is out of contract at Vale Park.

According to The Sentinel Vincent is on Evans` radar once more. The former Crawley Town manager attempted to sign Vincent last summer following his departure from Colchester United. However, he bizarrely claimed at the time that he couldn`t compete with the offer Vale made. Given that the Valiants were still in administration at the time and with Keith Ryder`s attempted takeover on the verge of collapse it seemed a strange statement. The entire Vale squad were then effectively free to leave as their contracts were no longer valid, but at no point did a renewed move for the winger emerge.

Vincent was one of the stars of Vale`s sparkling form over the first half of the season. Forming an effective partnership with fellow wide man Jennison Myrie-Williams, Vincent`s pace and direct running caused teams numerous problems, notably the 6-2 win over the Millers in September. However, an alarming loss of form over the second half of the campaign left supporters scratching their heads. An ankle injury sustained during the loss at Bristol Rovers in March all but ended his season.

There is little doubt of the close knit spirit that was harnessed within the squad last season. Many of those currently out of contract will be keen to stay in the Potteries despite interest from elsewhere. However, it is unlikely Vale would be in a position to match any contract offer from Rotherham for Vincent, nor should they. Whether it is idle chat, agent talk or whether the story does indeed have legs, it looks set to be an interesting summer of activity as Micky Adams seeks to build a squad capable of competing in League One.
