Pompey agree Pennant fee

Pompey agree Pennant fee

Nothing official, and no quotes from anyone, but sky sports news is running a 'breaking news' story that says we have agreed a fee with Liverpool for Jermaine Pennant.

Maybe this deal will go ahead as had been reported overnight afterall?

More will no doubt follow this afternoon, or maybe not as the case may well be...

UPDATE - The Pompey Site has now confirmed that a bid has been accepted and terms will be discussed over the coming days...

Get in! Well chuffed that not only are we signing someone, but he is one of the two style of players that we need, and is of the highest quality!

Pennant has been on the radio up here in Merseyside saying he wants the challenge of playing abroad, so unless we have moved to the Isle of Wight he is not thinking of coming to us. Liverpool may want him out, but he will have the final say surely, i dont think this one is a goer, and he really is the type of central midfield player, who plays wide on the right, we have been looking for, or as we will call him, Utaka II.

Sol Campbell said he wanted to play abroad too! Portsmouth technically is an island is it not? :-)

Great news, get Barton in as well and HMP Ford open prison will have a hell of a team. Or maybe we will change our name to Samaritans F.C

The official PFC website now has this - so I think its happening. Its great that we can sign a player of this quality, sends out a really positive message about the club. Real Madrid said they wanted him as a 'stopgap' till they get some Portuguese player who can't drive his Ferrari - if it was me, i wouldn't be very impressed by that.

the negative vibes, and cynical thoughts are taking over me - my positive, granted sometimes blind optimism is being seriously challenged these days...
so, i cannot help but think we 'know' that pennant will reject the terms offered to him as he does not want to leave liverpool, well not for another english club anyway? so announcing a fee has been agreed the club raises our hopes, if he rejects the terms offered him then that is not the clubs fault - another 'escape route' as to why a player isnt signed, similar to the o'neil bid, announcing an offer was made but rejected - it gave the impression 'we are trying but getting no help'...
owens, penton, matt and so on what have you done to me lol!

Rug, we have all had a reality check, i suppose it was bound to come, but it has taken us a while to realise what was going to happen at the club. Pennant has to choose between Madrid, Milan and Pompey, i do know where i would not be going when i was considering my options, terms will not be agreed, but it is a good/poor attempt to try and lift our spirirts, we will not be fooled anymore Mr Storrie.
