Muntari out, OJ in...

Muntari out, OJ in...

It is being claimed that reports in Italy are saying that Sulley Muntari will be an Inter player 'by the end of the day!'

It is said a fee of around £12m will take him to the San Siro, with it said he will sign a 5-year contract starting at £1.4m per year rising to £2m - yesterday it was a 3-year contract starting at £1.7m a year, hmmm...

The reports went on to claim that if he does not sign for the Italian champions today it will be tomorrow - with Udinese also apparently benefiting from this as they had a 'sell on clause' written into the deal that saw him come to Pompey for around £7m last summer.

I do not know what to believe anymore to be honest...

==========

Also, Monaco have denied bidding for Niko Kranjcar - with it last week claimed they had seen a £12m bid rejected.

Whilst acknowledging the Croatian is a quality footballer Monaco chairman Jerome de Bontin has denied that an approach was made.

==========

However one man that does look like he will be signing for Pompey is trialist Omar Krumah.

The Gambian teenager has impressed during a trial period with the club, although if he does sign he will not feature in the premier league in the foreseeable future with a number of Championship sides already enquiring about a loan move according to Harry Redknapp, who told The News: 'he's quick and has got a lot of everything.

'The kid wants to do well, he's willing to learn and hopefully he can do well here.

'I have already had half a dozen clubs wanting to play him this season, most of them are from the Championship.

'He's not ready for the Premier League but he's still young so his time can come.'

I have been impressed with what I have seen of 'OJ' so I say sign him up. Hopefully he can be one of those that will fulfil his promise and not just disappear off the radar as so many before him have.

So, go on guys, thoughts please...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

As stated elsewhere, keep Mendes, make Diarra happy and use the extra money carefully.

I don't mind if Muntari goes - we have plenty of cover in his position and if it means we'll be able to sign SWP then I say sell!

Ah balls, I think we should have kept Muntari personally. Oh well, lets hope we do put the money into signing SWP and that Villa have not beaten us there.

I think it pretty much must have come down to "Muntari or SWP?" & Harrys gotta be going to SWP!..what with us now starting with two up front (little & large) theirs less & less room in the center of midfield anyway!!! still, always gutted to see a very good player leave!!

I wish I could make a return of 12M on a 7M investment. Let him go, keep Pedro, sign SWP and a Centre back with the money.

An unexpected visitor

Pompey's Burgess was clearly at a loose end when the game at Crawley was postponed. That much was initially obviously with the level of desire to be involved in footie later revealed.

Cook - no need for a prolific marksman

Cook has said Pompey's lack of a 25 goal striker - I still think we have one - isn't going to impact on our promotion chances. I can see both sides of Cookie's opinion here to be fair.
