League Two news roundup: Port Vale defender Adam Yates retires and Darren Sarll returns to Stevenage

Joe Jones

What's been happening in League Two over the last week?

Here is Pride of Nottingham's round-up of the biggest League Two news from the last seven days.

- Port Vale defender Adam Yates announced his retirement, following a serious facial injury in November, but will remain with the club and work with the Port Vale Foundation.

- Darren Sarll returned to Stevenage to oversee their youth system, just 10 days after being sacked as their manager.The 35-year-old worked with the club's youth side and was a first-team coach before becoming boss in February 2016.

- Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale says he has still not reached an agreement with the club to extend his contract. The 45-year-old was served notice on his two-year rolling deal in November 2016 after a vote by the Exeter City Supporter's Trust, which runs the club.

- Newport County manager Michael said any new deal for club captain - and former Notts County player - Joss Labadie would have to be a long-term contract rather than a month-to-month agreement, the player likely to be out for at least six months with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

- Sticking with the Exiles, they confirmed that chief executive Alex Tunbridge would be leaving the Welsh club at the end of June after accepting the position of CEO at hometown club Stevenage.

- Teenage Crewe Alexandra striker George Nunn joined Premier League giants Chelsea for a reported fee of £300,000, despite not having made a first-team appearance for the Railwaymen.
