With Richard Dunne certain to leave Citeh this summer his destination appeared to be White Hart Lane, but 'reports' are claiming that we are preparing a late bid to 'hijack' Spurs' attempts to sign the Irish defender...
It is being said that we will launch a £5m counter offer to rival Spurs, which if true the fact that we have his former Citeh teammate Sylvain Distin 'might' give us the upper hand?
If we did sign him we would have 4 top class central defenders in the form of Dunne, Distin, Sol Campbell and of course the returning Linvoy Primus - talk about strength in depth!
Could he become the first 'quality' addition to the squad this summer that has been spoken about?
Pompey keep saying that Lassana Diarra will not be going anyway, and the player himself has been hinting at this but he has given his strongest indication yet that he will be with us next season by telling L'Equipe: 'I am fine at Portsmouth, where I have won the cup.
'I am very happy there. At Portsmouth, I have learnt a lot of things, and I am one of the key players.
'I joined them to play a lot of matches. And I have found what I wanted.'
The key phrase is 'I joined them to play a lot of matches' - and he has by now means played 'a lot of games' yet has he!
This sounds promising but until the summer transfer window slams shut and we still have him at Fratton I will not be completely comfortable, but I am now feeling more confident than ever that he will stay with us for at least another season...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
