The owner of Port Vale has made a statement, confirming recent offers to buy the club.
Norman Smurthwaite says they have all come from the same organisation -Synectics Solutions - who have made three separate offers in the last three weeks.
The statement continues: "Any offer that is made to the owner should not be conditional on the owner providing a mortgage to the person making the offer.
"When the owner bought the club it was for a single payment consideration, and when the owner sells the club it’ll be for a single payment consideration.
"The owner will not consider any further offers made by any parties where it’s conditional for the owner to provide a mortgage to that person."
