Port Vale striker Marc Richards has signed a one-year contract extension that commits him to the Valiants until the summer of 2010.

The 26-year-old forward has turned down a move to Cheltenham Town in order to extend his stay at Vale Park.

Manager Lee Sinnott told BBC Radio Stoke: "It's great news because Marc has made the decision for himself.

"He's a valuable part of the team, not just his goalscoring but the way he brings other players into the game."
