Port Vale's administrators have revealed they are still in negotiations over the possible sale of the Valiants.

Administrators Poppleton and Appleby had hoped to announce the new owners of the Second Division strugglers at the end of last week.

But an acceptable deal was not reached with the interested parties.

Administrator Ian Ross said: "We are still in negotiations with several interested parties.

"It's a case of the parties proving to us that they can come up with the necessary finances.

"Hopefully by the end of this week we will have something sorted out."

Supporter-based consortium Valiant 2001 is believed to be one of the bidders, though the others have not yet been revealed.

Vale have reported debts of 2.4m.
