Pompey to sign Trinidad youngster?

Pompey to sign Trinidad youngster?

Skysports.com is reporting that we are closing in on Trindad youngster Khaleem Hyland - a long term reported target...

After a trial last year a move from San Juan Jabloteh to Pompey was denied when the midfielder was rejected a work permit, but having kept an eye on the 19-year-old his agent has said that subject to a work permit being issued this time he will be coming to Fratton this summer: 'Khaleem has been offered a four-year deal by Portsmouth and we are just waiting for a work permit and we don't envisage any problems with that.

'There were a host of clubs interested in signing Khaleem, but he is happy to go with Portsmouth.

'Portsmouth have held a long-term interest in Khaleem and he is looking forward to the chance of playing in England.'

To be honest I do not know a great deal about the fella, other than the fact that we have been after him for a long while now, but from the looks of it, if what his agent has told skysports.com is true his signing is getting close... if he gets a work permit this time...

Can't say that I know much about him, but I found an insightful tidbit about him. http://www.socawarriors.net/khaleem_hyland.htm

He originally agreed terms with Wigan but they didn't want to wait to see if he could get a work permit. It appears they wanted him to go straight into the first team but couldn't take the risk of missing out on other players if he doesn't get his work permit. He was, by reports, one of the better players on the pitch in the recent England v Trindad and Tobago friendly. Worth a go I would think.

No doubt one for the future, out on loan probably.

Yup thats it Rug, once you are a constant international you are deemed at being skillfull enough at your trade to warrent a work permit. Will he be another player brought in that we never get to see play I wonder?

Harry is going to have to be a magician to give everyone a regular game, field the best side and still have happy players and supporters. Oh to be a club manager!! I suppose the 4 million a year helps ease the pain.
