'Apparently' McFadden Fratton bound...
Now that the season is over and the summer transfer window getting even closer the 'transfer links' will come thick and fast and today has served us up with a helping of James McFadden to Pompey this summer for a whopping £8m!
The suggestion is that although he has pledged to stay with Birmingham despite their relegation Harry Redknapp wants to offer £4m cash plus Dave Nugent - so a 'package' worth £8m for the Scottish international who only moved to the Brummies in January for a fee of £5m, which as good as he is even seemed 'a little hefty' even then?
You do have to improve, but although I am not convinced that he will stay I would like to see Nugent kept as I still believe that he will come good, the fact that McFadden is not worth £8m also makes this a no go for me - but I guess you can never say never...
Harry Kewell, who is now a free agent following his release by Liverpool is also another name being mentioned in the papers today - £50,000 a week will apparently see him sign although this would mean Niko Kranjcar would be off for £10m with Liverpool joining Arsenal in the hunt for the Croatian.
One man that seems to be getting closer and closer to being a nailed on certainty to arrive is Peter Crouch - the giant striker is just a matter of time away from being a confirmed Pompey signing, I have little or no doubt about it...
