Nathan Dyer to cross the divide?

Nathan Dyer to cross the divide?

The News is reporting that Nathan Dyer could become the latest player to switch allegiance from the Saints to Pompey.

Dyer is out of contract this summer, so with Harry Redknapp looking to add some English talent to his squad the fact that he is this, and also a winger - something which our squad is desperately short of and in need of - he seems to fit the bill.

Redknapp knows him from his time with 'them down the road' - he actually gave him his debut - so he is no stranger to our boss. As he is only 20, although he will be a free agent if a new deal is not signed we would need to pay a compensation amount, as we did for Martin Cranie when he crossed the divide last summer.

I know Dyer might like to 'help himself' from time to time but from what I have seen he is a decent little player who would be well worth a punt if you ask me.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

interesting. dunno much about him. is he any relation to kieron? most of these "crossings" seem to be truthful. hopefully a good potential with us!

I wonder if he would go straight in the first team or would we nurture him for a couple of years?

looks like he has a lot of petential, although i would expect him to come across in similer circumstances to martin cranie - i.e. not play much next season if he did.

A talented young man, let's hope he has learned his lesson.

certainly worth a pop if you ask me, he has the talent so if the price is right snap him up - but also give him a go, if he's good enough he's old enough, same applies to any of our players for next season.

I've seen a couple of replays with him playing. Looks OK and puts in more effort than Utaka.

He's a good player, fast and tricky BUT the reason he has not been in the Scum team is that he is school-boy sized and regularly gets knocked off the ball. If he can avoid physical contact he will be a very good prospect. I'd also look closely at Andrew Surman.

Fratton team sheets - Pompey v Bristol Rovers

Pompey are at Fratton with Bristol Rovers the visitors for our league two match. This is a 3pm kick-off, as was intended by the football gods when the beautiful game was invented!

On this day in history...13th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 13th February.

Big Ben returns!

There's no doubting how important Davies is to us, we most definitely missed the former Sheffield United man against Orient but Cook's confirmed he'll start against Bristol Rovers.

Winning over the fans

Cook feels he still has to 'win over a proportion' of the fans at Pompey?
