Port Vale candidate John Ward has said he is ready to make his comeback into football management.

The 58-year-old, who has been out of a job since he was sacked by Carlisle in November, is understood to be the favourite to land the Vale job.

Ward told BBC Radio Stoke: "I believe that I can still do a good job at any club who wishes to employ me."

Vale are delaying naming their new boss because they have yet to reach an agreement with new investors Harlequin.
