Bradford have made the loan deal for Oldham midfielder Jon Worthington permanent after the player agreed a termination to his Latics contract. He will remain with the Bantams until the end of the season. Torquay are still waiting to hear what funding they will be allowed from the Football Foundation in their bid to build a new main stand at Plainmoor. Their current ground capacity is under 5,500 after safety rules saw the allowable capacity in their current stand cut.
Port Vale's board say Mo Chaudry's bid for the club will leave them even further in debt. At their last accounts they had £3.6million of debt, but the board say it will deepen as Chaudry is only intending to loan money to the club. On the pitch the Valiants want to sign Rotherham striker Tom Pope, while former Bull Kris Taylor has told the press he wants a new deal. The utility man has started only nine games this season after signing a 12 month deal last summer.
