Vale dismiss Birchall 'interest'
Chris Birchall
Birchall played in all three of the Soca Warriors' group games
Port Vale boss Martin Foyle insists there is "no truth" in speculation that Trinidad and Tobago midfielder Chris Birchall is set to leave Vale Park.

Ipswich were reported to be tracking the 22-year-old, who has a year remaining on his Vale contract and is currently away on holiday.

Foyle told BBC Radio Stoke: "It's obvious that his name will be mentioned after his displays at the World Cup.

"But we're hoping that we can agree a new contract with him."

Stafford-born Birchall has made 78 league appearances for Vale since making his debut nearly five years ago.

He played in all of the Soca Warriors' group games against Sweden, England and Paraguay.
