Port Vale captain angry that injuries could scupper summer move

Port Vale captain Doug Loft is undecided whether or not he will take legal action against Daniel Jones over the facial injuries that have brought a premature end to his season.

Loft was last week involved in a training ground altercation with then-team mate Jones, who has since had his contract with the club terminated, as Vale prepared for their League One fixture against Notts County.

On Tuesday morning, one tabloid newspaper printed a photograph of Loft's face under the headline 'disfigured' and went on to say that he had suffered broken bones in his nose, jaw and cheek.

Speaking about the incident, Loft told Sky Sports News:

I have never had a problem with Jonesy and he has never had one with me, as far as I know.

We went into a tackle and as I was getting up off the floor he hit me. I fell backwards and sat on the floor, the gaffer sent him in and I went to hospital for X-rays. He texted me on the day and said sorry, that was it.

At the minute I am angry. I have been playing really well and I was getting a lot of interest and I knew that people were watching me. I am annoyed and upset that I will miss the rest of the season.
