Notts County facing battle to sign Port Vale defender

Notts County are facing a battle to sign Port Vale’s Carl Dickinson according to a report from the Nottingham Post.

The Magpies have already begun talks with the defender who is set to leave Port Vale after refusing to take a pay cut after the club were forced to slash their playing budget again. And according to reports those talks have been very productive and it was expected that he would sign for Notts County at some point this week and become John Sheridan’s first signing since he became the manager.

However now County could face a battle as two other teams have joined the race to sign Dickinson and have entered talks with the defender. While these clubs are currently unknown, they are said to have a good chance of being able to lure Dickson to their team.

However despite that, the East Midlands club are expected to still be heading the race to sign Dickinson. With the defender currently living in Staffordshire, signing for County would mean only a short commute to training and would be the easiest move for his personal life.

Dickinson started his career at Stoke City and spent seven years there before moving to Watford. After two years at the Hornets he elected to drop down a league to join Port Vale, where he has been ever since.
