Once again it is a day for the same old same old really...
Lassana Diarra has once again reiterated his desire to remain with Pompey again next season, with Citeh, who have shown an interest viewed as 'a backwards step' - so he is not going there.
The News is reporting that he would only be willing to leave Fratton for anyone of what he sees as 'the four biggest in the world - Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Chelsea.'
We are a club with ambition, a club that matches his own so why would or should he leave unless it is for a club that is a significant move forward...
Mauro Zarate has once again been 'linked' with Pompey this week, with it claimed that a season long loan deal had been agreed with his Qatari side Al-Sadd.
Having denied an interest when it was previously claimed we were going one step further and actually signing him Peter Storrie has again denied the latest claims, telling The News: 'Mauro Zarate is signing? That's an interesting one.
'When did I do that one then? I can't remember doing it!
'I think we have been linked with 38 different players. It's just silly season.'
Quite why the links to the Argentinean keep resurfacing is anybodies guess - some would say there is no smoke without fire...
And finally, earlier in the week it was Sean Davis that was off to Birmingham, this time it is Dave Nugent that is going to the Brummies.
Having sold Fabrice Muamba to Bolton this week the paper claims are that Alex McLeish wants to spend a chunk on that to sign Nugent...
Nugent has himself said that 'he will not be forced out of the club', but all the talk is he is not shot of admirers with Sunderland and Stoke both interested too.
As always I say that I would like him to stay, but should he go then you would hope it would be to our benefit and someone 'better' would come in to replace him, but we will see eh...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
