Port Vale: No deal on cards for old boy Lee Collins, says Micky Adams
PORT Vale boss Micky Adams is unlikely to make a move for former defender Lee Collins.
The 24-year-old is a free agent after agreeing a settlement on his contract with Barnsley yesterday.
Collins has been back to Vale Park to watch the first team this season, and remains popular at the club after playing 163 games before his £50,000 move to Oakwell last March.
However, Adams has already strengthened his defence during the transfer window by signing central defender Darren Purse and left back Daniel Jones.

He said: "Lee has great affinity to this club. I thought he did fantastically well for me, but I can't see anything happening."
Adams is delighted with his transfer window business, which also includes the signings of Chris Birchall and Lee Hughes. However, he hasn't ruled out strengthening his squad further when the window for loan signings opens a week today.
He explained: "While we are happy with the numbers and the people we have available to us in our squad, once the loan window re-opens we might look again. But we are happy with what we have done.
"We think we have done decent business and we did it early rather than scramble around looking for players at the back end of the window."
Vale's attempts to sign two young players didn't come off yesterday, but Adams says they are likely to look at the players again in the summer.
Meanwhile, the Valiants are considering letting winger Ryan Lloyd go out on loan.
Defender Joe Davis is doubtful for tomorrow's home game with Accrington after he suffered a dead leg in the reserve game with Oldham on Tuesday.
Louis Dodds and Rob Taylor are back in training after a calf strain and Achilles injury respectively. However, neither are likely to be involved against Accrington.
