Port Vale are poised to announce a "big signing", according to co-owner Paul Wildes.

Second place Valiants re-signed midfielder Chris Birchill last week and added former Plymouth man Darren Purse http://static.lingospot.com/spot/image/spacer.gifto the squad at the weekend.

Signal Sources believe that forward Rob Earnshaw could be close to joining the club after Wildes revealed there will be another new arrival at Vale Park.

We expect at least one more signing before Saturday's game with Gillingham
