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."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
