The man who guided Coventry City into the Ricoh Arena era and an 8th place finish in the Championship, something we may never see again, Micky Adams, is in the news on Tuesday.

His lengthy career in football, including spells as both a Sky Blues player and manager, is the subject of a new autobiography which will be published this week but it may not be the end of the line for the 55-year-old just yet.

A third stint at Port Vale is reportedly on the cards, even if it is in a director of football role rather than as a replacement for the recently sacked Michael Brown.

Owner Norman Smurthwaite told BBC Radio Stoke: ‘We need someone like a Micky Adams, who was very strong in stature at the club – that’s the kind of mould of the man we need to find.

‘I’d like to bring in an experienced head as a director of football and bring in a much younger person who’s got the aspirations and desire and bring him through.’
