Hyland work permit refused?

Hyland work permit refused?

Pompey have been tracking Trinidadian midfielder Khaleem Hyland for well over a year now, but this move again appears doomed to fail...

Sky sports is reporting - as we had expected to be honest - that he has again been refused a work permit so his move to Fratton has yet again fallen through, as it did last summer when he and a couple of other Trinidadian stars were offered contracts after successful trials.

Other clubs have signed players then agreed deals to loan them out to 'feeder clubs' in the past until the can claim themselves a European passport, and it had been suggested that we could have done this and sent him to Zulte in Belgium, although this looks unlikely and the free agent will now most likely end up somewhere else...

This is of course disappointing news, but to be honest do we really think that he would have made an impression on the 1st team in the near future? It is also news that I think we had been expecting in all honest hadn't we?

So, with around six and a half hours of the transfer window left we remain left on the edge of our seats wondering 'if', as unlikely as it might seem at the moment, we could pull off one last deal, but mostly wondering 'if' we will lose any more key players...

Shame. Attention will surely be switched to Appiah now. He might have been a player 'for the future' like Koroma (is that his name?), but not yet. No doubt we will see Davis & Nugent go before midnight.

iv heard the barton rumour too. hes got to be in the top five most hated players by portsmouth fans, along with thatcher, diouf, bridge and beattie. why would we want him? and he might get a 12 match ban immediately!

top 5? personaly, I think only thatcher beats him! In regards to the hyland however, it is a shame, although I hope that he will hopefully join us eventually...

We wanted him, so that must count for something. So if not now then another time.

On this day in history...20th September

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 20th September.

More Reliable Than A League 1 Octopus? (20/9/17)

Time for the special computer that crunches the numbers to determine the final League One positions for the season of 2017/18.

Roberts opens up

In fairness when Gary Roberts - obviously now at Wigan - says Kenny Jackett showed 'a lack of respect' towards him in the final weeks of his Pompey career it's hard to disagree.

Next in (the firing) line

Of course, Huddersfield loanee Holmes-Dennis is out for the season after suffering ligament damage now - having initially had to sit behind Haunstrup - McCrory has a twisted knee.
