Sulley Muntari has become the latest Pompey player to come out and pledge his future to the club.
Juventus were 'said' to be interested in the Ghanaian - something they have denied - with Muntari claiming further interest in him from others but has told been quoted as telling Brila FM - the same African radio station Kanu was quoted as telling his 'I deserve more' to recently: 'I'm aware that many clubs are interested in my signature but I'm enjoying myself at Portsmouth and for now, I'm not thinking of leaving the club.'
Nice of him to commit, not so keen on the 'for now' part as this gives the implication that he would be off in a shot if someone came in for him, which to be fair if it was a 'bigger club' which would see him make 'a step forward' you would understand wouldn't you.
Niko Kranjcar, Lassana Diarra - who spurned Spurs' advances - and now Muntari all committing to Pompey is good news, as keeping our better players is essential for our continued steps forward.
Muntari was very hit and miss last season to be honest, but I am convinced we will see the best of him this season and then his I am happy 'for now' thoughts could well come into play...
Another day, and yet more Peter Crouch talk, but it wouldn't be the same without it would it - he will sign soon enough though!
This time it is news that a final £10m virtual 'take it or leave it' offer has been made for the England man... Liverpool will take it as the scousers need the money, they know it and we know it, they cannot risk trying to hold out for anymore as I cannot see anyone being willing to go any higher than that, and with less than a year on his contract why should they!
Besides he wants to come here and is not interested in going elsewhere - apparently.
And finally, with Peter Storrie having denied having any knowledge of the whole 'Kanu believes that Kanu deserves more issue' Kanu is quoted in The News as saying: 'there are just some little details that we need to discuss. But I will sign the contract.'
How best to dodge pre-season training again this summer could well be 'the little details' I reckon...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
