Uche Ikpeazu’s departure from Port Vale looms as contract talks stall

0 The Premier League Middlesbrough V Birmingham City Saturday 30th October 2021 Riverside Stadiu

Speculation surrounds the future of Uche Ikpeazu Mubiru at Port Vale FC, with reliable sources indicating uncertainty regarding the striker’s contract renewal as the club faces relegation to English League Two (D4).

According to sources close to the situation, negotiations between Ikpeazu’s representatives and Port Vale have hit a standstill, raising doubts about his tenure with The Valiants for the upcoming 2024/25 season.

The 29-year-old’s current contract is set to expire on June 30, adding urgency to the discussions.

The impasse in talks coincides with Port Vale’s focus on a substantial rebuilding effort following their relegation from League One.

The club’s uncertainty surrounding the future of coach Darren Moore further complicates matters, leaving Ikpeazu’s family and representatives frustrated with the lack of progress.

While inquiries regarding Ikpeazu’s future were met with silence from his family in Kampala, recent reports suggest a potential move to Charlton Athletic FC in England’s Football League One.

Talks with Charlton reportedly reignited after previously breaking down during the January transfer window.

During the recently concluded season, Ikpeazu made 20 appearances for Port Vale in League One, managing a solitary goal.

Additionally, he featured in matches across various competitions, including the EFL Trophy, EFL Cup, and FA Cup.

Ikpeazu boasts a diverse professional background, having previously plied his trade for clubs such as Konyaspor in Turkey, Cardiff, Middlesbrough, Wycombe, and Hearts of Midlothian in Scotland.

His journey also includes stints with Cambridge United, Blackpool, and Doncaster Rovers.

Despite holding Nigerian nationality, Ikpeazu has garnered attention from the Ugandan national team, receiving a call-up, albeit without making an international appearance.
