Pope, the leading scorer in League Two with 26 goals so far this season, will be out of contract in the summer.

However, the 27-year-old triggered the option of extending his deal by a further year when he netted for the 15th time this campaign.

He told BBC Radio Stoke: "I've had people asking me about rumours from other clubs but I just try and distance myself from anything.

"Hopefully I can sort something out, we can get promoted, and I can continue scoring goals for the Vale.

"All I know is that I'm scoring goals for the club I love, we're top of the league and promotion beckons if we keep it going - I'm enjoying every minute."
