'Arry admits Benayoun interest

'Arry admits Benayoun interest

Pompey were 'linked' with Liverpool winger Yossi Benayoun over the weekend, and now Harry Redknapp has admitted an interested in the Israeli but he is not sure what our chances are of getting him...

He told The News: 'he's a top player. I don't know what the chances are of getting him out of Liverpool.

I already thought that over the weekend Benayoun had already said he wanted to stay with Liverpool? But there you go...

Redknapp also spoke about Peter Crouch, playing down the chances of signing him - indicating that the price might be too much for us: 'it's known I like Crouchie, too. But it doesn't look like anything is happening there. I think Liverpool want a bit too much money for him.

'If that's the case then we'll move on to the next option.'

Benayoun would cost a 'reported' £6m, with Citeh also interested, whereas Crouch's value is said to be around £10m, the same amount 'reported' for another target Shawn Wright-Phillips, which I would guess would rule him out as well...

I have to admit, I like Yossi and think he is quality but cant see him leaving the pool just yet... and maybe crouch does want to wait till next year and then cash in on the transfer himself!

I can't see him leaving this season. If he doesn't get a good run in the team then maybe in Jan or next summer, but not this early into his career.

Think he will stay with Liverpool, SWP would be a better option.

Early in his career at 28 not realy early for a midfield player, I must say he does look young though.

Duo sign professional Pompey deals

Will Jez Bedford and Theo Widdrington be the future Pompey midfield? We'll certainly hope so, clearly the Blues do too or they wouldn't have signed professional deals at Fratton Park.

Nathan Thompson - A Swindon perspective

Prior to his departure for Wigan, Paul Cook wanted Nathan Thompson at Pompey. Interest was retained by Kenny Jackett, who completed his free transfer signing from Swindon last week.

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.
