Deal or no deal? Sean Davis...

Deal or no deal? Sean Davis...

So, we have some 15 players out of contract in the summer (or seeing their loans with Pompey end) it is almost time to decide who deserves a new contract and who does not deserve the drippings from my nose, well ours noses!

I was going to look at them all together, but I think I will do them one at a time... Simple question, and as the bearded one would say, 'deal or no deal?'

Sean Davis

He has given his all for Pompey over the past few months, coming in from the cold to give it everything. He has become a 'golden boy', but I always get this feeling that he is one of those that is only being used while it benefits us and we are waiting for 'something better'.

A new deal is on the table, and he has 'apparently' managed to see more money offered as a result of our desperation to keep him amid an interest from Bolton in January. My thinking is with a contract on the table why is it not signed...

His worry is now, does he commit for another 3-years plus knowing that he might not be a regular 1st team player over this time? For me, he is not one of those that is happy to just 'pick up the money', he wants to play football as well.

Rumours that he was again offered as a 'makeweight' for a potential deal that might have brought Gary O'Neil back to Pompey from Boro could prove the last straw for him - and I hear that he has been offered to others as a makeweight several times over the years...

Deal or no deal? No deal.

I want to say deal, but feel it will be no deal if a new contract is not signed by the end of the season, as if not I do not think it will be.

As said the guy will want to play regular football and I suspect that we will be looking for options to replace him in the summer and he knows it - yet his loyalty has prevented him from jumping ship before he saw the job through. That said maybe he would have gone if we had accepted the offer?

These are my thoughts, what about yours? As always please share them below...

Deal for me too. He's a quality player and can still play in the Premiership. If we tie him down he'll be fantastic in the Championship and he won't leave, so he'll be a great asset. Whenever he's called upon he turns out a performance, and although I don't see him being a first team regular, he's essential if we are going to have strength in depth in the Prem.

I say deal, but it looks like it might well be up to Sean now. Maybe he is holding out just to see what happens in a couple of months.

Deal, and i think he will sign, but just waiting to see who is the next manager. I think he would have signed an extension last year without question, but after the way harry treated him at Wembley, after being one his "Blue eyed Boys" then snubbed at the last minute at Wembley, i think he is probably now looking after number 1 and you cant blame him for that. Harry has a lot more to answer for, than people realise i think.
