Adams pulls off transfer coup

Adams pulls off transfer coup

Tony Adams has pulled off quite a transfer coup to make Ghanaian 'wonderkid' Torric Jibril his first signing as Pompey manager.

The 17-year-old midfielder has signed a 3-year contract and as he told The Sun he is out to impress: 'I'm sure very soon I will be one of the best players in England.

'God willing I will live up to my potential because with all these facilities here in England I will not disappoint.

'Where I have come from we don't have all of these. So the sky is the limit.'

It is a done deal as the fella has been pictured holding a Pompey shirt with no.10 Torric on the back.

We have beaten off competition from two of Europe's finest in Arsenal and Real Madrid to sign Torric, so with these sides in the running for him alone means he cannot be bad, beating them to his signature is even better and will hopefully be quite a feather in the cap of Adams.

Will Adams have the nerve to give the youngster a run-out this season or is he another for the future? If he is good enough he is old enough as the old saying goes...

He's gotta be something special if all the rumours are true.

Sounds good. No official statement on the PFC website yet but there's a report on the Ghanaian FA site. Another article I read stated that a continued relationship has been set up between Pompey and Heart of Oak including an academy in Ghana, trials, loans etc. A loan to Zulte Waregem was also mentioned.

Sorry, but who? I guess since I don't play Football Manager anymore, I don't know any of the hot upcoming talents?

im slightly concerned by this now, as there is no word from pompey - not even in the news... and the 'image' of him holding the shirt seems a bit 'strange' clearly its fresh from the club shop, as it still has the labels on, and as has been pointed out to me isnt nugent no.10?
maybe im worrying without need, but 'maybe' i was a little hasty in running with this?

Whats with the rumours that he failed his trials at other clubs? All seems a bit suspect to me really at the moment.

That picture could be of any kid outside the Mega store with his new shirt!! Not that I am at all concerned about the truth of the story.

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.

Interest in Plymouth midfielder? Unfortunately not

Apparently, having stolen the League Two title from Plymouth, we'll not be taking the Pilgrims' best player, ex-Celtic midfielder Carey, currently out-of-contract at Home Park.
