Taylor adds Power to Port Vale takeover bid

Lifelong Port Vale Football Club supporter and PDC World Darts Champion Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor has suggested he would be keen to invest in The Valiants if the right owners were brought in.  

However Football Trade Directory reported on Monday that the Npower League One club rejected a takeover approach from businessman and personal friend of Taylor, Mo Chaudry, stating they do not wish to sell the club.

Darts legend Taylor is keen for the club to rethink its decision and feels sure that Chaudry’s input would not only benefit the club but encourage him to invest too.

Speaking to The Senitel Taylor revealed: "If the right people came in, I would seriously consider investing and also coming on to the board if the club wanted me to."

"I'm friends with (Vale chairman) Bill Bratt and also Mo, so this puts me in a difficult position. But Mo is a very good businessman. He's a self-made millionaire and would make every effort to help the club move forward."

Following the Npower League One club's decision to reject the approach a statement on the club’s official site ruled out future talks, stating:  "At a board meeting, this approach [from Mo Chaudry] was unanimously rejected and all members decided it will not be pursued at any stage in the future."
