'Reports' of an Ipswich interest in Dave Nugent continue to grow - so if true then the striker could be set to become the latest 'sacrifice' as we seek to raise funds...
The suggestion is that Ipswich have put together a £5m package for Nugent, which would see them pay £3.5m upfront with a further £1.5m paid if they win promotion and he will hold talks with, and undergo a medical in the next 48 hours.
'If' we do sell him, I think this will be a bad move as although we have signed Peter Crouch and have Ben Sahar on loan until January we are suddenly going completely the opposite direction to the direction we were said to be going... instead of building on the squad, adding 'quality' we are dismantling it leaving us shorter of numbers instead of increasing them!
All of this is of course, if even true, dependant on him being willing to drop down a league again - something that so far he has been unwilling to do. But surely there are only so many times he could see the club willing to do business on him before he says 'sod you lot I am going!'
Quite what is going on with Pompey at the moment is anybodies guess, but it seems to be that the money raised from the selling of Sulley Muntari is not being reinvested in the side - although I hope this is still the case as it is a bad move otherwise - so would the £3.5m be given back to Harry Redknapp here? Even if it was it would not buy a great deal would it?
I am still not 'panicking' but I must confess my frustrations about this summer, and how things have gone on the whole are growing...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
