Kaboul to finally sign?

Kaboul to finally sign?

The Mews of the World were first in this mornings paper, now official confirmation has come from Pompey's own website, this is what they had to say

'Younes Kaboul has agreed a four-year deal with Pompey.


The centre-half will have a medical at Fratton Park on Monday ahead of a proposed switch from Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee.


The 22-year-old made 19 Premier League starts for Spurs last season, scoring three goals.


"He`s a player the manager set his sights on very early," said Blues coach Joe Jordan.


"He`s been looked at by a number of clubs, but he wanted to come to us. He was influenced by the presence of Harry Redknapp and the players here who can help him develop.


"He`s a player that wants to progress. Lassana Diarra came here from Arsenal because he wanted to play regular football, and he`s flourished.


"Kaboul wants to come here and do that as well."'

This may either mean that Sacha has had his arm sufficiently twisted, or that one of our fringe players is on the verge of departing, Sean Davis never even made the subs bench today, and Nugent is heavily linked to depart either on loan or permanently, time will tell.

Lets hope Kaboul is better than he has displayed so far. Very poor at the back today, as I keep saying on here Sol has lost the edge and all teams know to pass the ball between Campbell and Distin.

Let's hope Kaboul can make a difference. Our entire back four looked shaky today, so perhaps some more steel in the centre will give Glen and Hermann some much-needed confidence.

Yeah, ive had my suspicions about Sol since last seaon, paticulally the game against Sunderland where Kenwyne Jones gave him all sorts of issues...really pleased with this signing, to find a really promising young cental defender is near on impossible!!!..so well done boys!...just want to send a shout out to Diop today, best performance Ive seen with him on the right!....even though he cant cross a ball....he really was a center-mid playing on the right!

Good news on a good day for Pompey. I thought we played well today but need to workout a way of creating chances for Crouch and Defoe. Midfield looked strong but not creative enough and there was no central defender on the bench. Kaboul will fill that gap.

I thought the midfield was poor and wastefull to often. they showed times when they out passed even untides star-studded midfield, however at times they just looked unfocused. However john utaka looked really up for it when he came on, and mvuemba looked good too. It was a shame cranie didnt get a run out though, and that linvoy got a little injury too.

If we are to sign kaboul as the pfc website says, then it must show to some of the doom and gloomers that there is money in the pot.

With Adams coaching him, you will have a brilliant player in a few months time. Has all the attributes of a quality CB, just needs to tune them and put them in order. Good in the air, tall, quick, strong. His only downfall is his liking of going forward all the time, but as I said Adams should coach that out of him and make him concerntrate on defending.
