Port Vale close on Rodgers

Last updated : 16 January 2007 By Daniel Elwes
Rodgers is out of favour at Gresty Road, and has managed just three goals this season.

Vale are looking to Rodgers as a direct replacement for Leon Constantine, who is expected to move to Championship side Barnsley.

And Crewe boss Dario Gradi expects Rodgers to quickly agree terms for a move to Vale Park.

"He has said he wants to remain playing in this league, so I would imagine Port Vale have a good chance of him accepting their terms," said Gradi.

"I don't think money will be a deciding factor because it is not something we discussed at great length when he signed for us."
