Shorey exit expected this week

Shorey exit expected this week

The grumpy man of football Steve Coppell - although there is something about him that I do like to be honest - has confirmed to the Reading Site that he expects Nicky Shorey to have completed his move away from the club by Sunday: 'without being specific about any destination, I expect Nicky to be gone by the time we kick off this weekend.

'There has been interest, and I expect him to be plying his trade with someone else by the time we get to Nottingham.

'He's been consistent right from this time last year.

'He's said he wanted to go, try a fresh challenge. We'll see what happens but I imagine he'll be gone.'

Reading rejected an offer for the England man - from an unnamed club - yesterday with some believing this offer had been from Pompey, but this is not thought to have been the case.

We 'could' sign him - the fact that we his best mate Glen Little helps - but I am not so sure we will as we might not pay what Reading are holding out for? Villa, West Ham and Sunderland are all also 'said' to be keen on him.

I can report some potential good news though, the word that I have is that Younes Kaboul will be at Pompey for a medical tomorrow with a deal completed on Friday!

Do not hold me to this, but I am told that this is a deal the person really does believe will finally happen after all the talk...

==========

Also, as had been briefly reported earlier in the week Danijel Subotic has now officially completed a move to our Belgian partners Zulte Waregem. The striker will be joining them on loan to gain some 1st team experience.

Sorry I reckon we'll get shorey at villa. Well I hope so as we are somewhat sparse at the back. Especially at the left if Barry does bloody eventually go. Any chance your billionaire could lend liverpool a few bob or rather £18m? You'll get Kaboul though and as for Ljungberg, good player yes, but injury prone. And when he's not injured he invariably has a headache. And as for his wages ££££££££! Are you sure!

Villa & Sunderland have both had bids turned down for Shorey Pompey have only expressed an intrest so who will make the right bid anyones guess? To be honest can't see Freddie playing in prem again. Hope your right kaboul Rug, but at what cost?

Villa have money to burn & are desperate to sign anybody. I'll be very surprised if we sign Shorey when Reading want £5-6m for him. As for Freddie the Fag, brilliant in his day at arsenal but a shadow of himself now. West Ham were mad enough to pay him some £60k a week, allegedley!!!
