I will not play again i want to leave, says Port Vale key player

Port Vale player departure is good news for Derby County, Burnley, and Hull: View
As the summer transfer window heats up, Championship clubs are eyeing St Johnstone’s Adama Sidibeh.
Derby, Middlesbrough, Burnley, and Hull are all interested in signing Sidibeh following his impressive performance in Scotland.

The transfer of Port Vale’s Uche Ikpeazu to St Johnstone may pave the way for Sidibeh’s move, adding depth to Championship clubs.
With the season over, clubs are already preparing to make moves in the early stages of the summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, other teams are being linked with several potential targets, as they look to strengthen their squads ahead of the new campaign.

As a result, players can find themselves at the centre of interest from multiple clubs, leaving their future very much up for debate.

One such player who already looks to be in that position in the lead-up to the transfer window is St Johnstone striker Adama Sidibeh.

Championship clubs in the race for St Johnstone striker

Sidibeh joined St Johnstone on the last day of this year’s January transfer window, coming from English non-league club Warrington Rylands.

However, the striker quickly established himself in Scotland. He scored five goals in 15 games, and those strikes were critical in helping the Scottish club maintain their top-flight status.
This appears to have sparked widespread interest in the 25-year-old. According to Football Insider, three Championship-bound clubs, Derby County, Middlesbrough, and Burnley, are all interested in signing Sidibeh this summer.

Meanwhile, journalist Alan Nixon has reported that Hull City, another English second-tier side, is interested in signing him.

It could be argued that a transaction involving a club further down the Football League than those linked with the St Johnstone striker could benefit Championship sides in the race to sign Sidibeh.

Adama Sidibeh can now move after Port Vale’s transfer
For those involved with Port Vale, the 2023/24 season is one they would rather forget.

The Valiants finished 23rd in the final League One standings, confirming their relegation to League Two after two seasons in English football’s third tier.

Following the relegation, the club’s exit from Vale Park in preparation for its return to the fourth tier has already begun.

Uche Ikpeazu is one of those who is leaving, with the club confirming last week that the striker will leave for the second time this summer after his contract expired.

The 29-year-old has wasted no time in finding a new club, as it was announced at the same time that he will join St Johnstone on a two-year contract.

In doing so, Ikpeazu will reunite with his former manager at Hearts, Craig Levein, and give the aforementioned clubs hope of completing a deal for Sidibeh.

By moving so quickly in the window to bring in a centre forward like Ikpeazu, they may have anticipated losing options in that position and have now secured a replacement.

With the addition of the former Port Vale player, they have added depth to their centre-forward position.
They may thus be more willing to let another striker, Sidibeh, go if the right offer comes in, as they are less concerned about leaving a void in that area of the pitch.

As a result, the chances of Derby, Burnley, and Hull signing the St Johnstone forward this summer may have improved following Ikpeazu’s departure from Vale.

Given that those Championship clubs appear to need to reinforce their own center-forward options this summer, they must be looking
