Acting chairman Mike Lloyd wants to remain a Port Vale director despite news of a potential takeover of the League Two club.

Reports of an investment deal for the Valiants means the music entrepreneur's role in the running of the club could be up for review.

Pennsylvania-based synthetic pitch installer Blue Sky International are about to take a seat on the board as part of their investment package while another candidate, who the club have yet to name, is poised to be put forward as a replacement for former chairman Bill Bratt.

Blue Sky's nominee will be their chief executive Hank Julicher, who is due to visit Burslem next month when his agenda will include discussing the position of chairman.

"My intention is to stay on the board unless the club says they don't want me," Lloyd told The Sentinel. "Nothing has changed with regards the chairmanship, I am happy to do it until someone else comes along. I don't know who will be the new chairman until we have meetings with Hank. I'd like to stay on the board, whether I'm chairman or just a director. I don't have any delusions of grandeur."

Meanwhile, Port Vale have announced a shirt sponsorship deal with AJP Group. The investment company's name and logo will appear on the back of the club's home and away shirts for the next three years.
