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."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
