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...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
